Pulsed Doppler is a radar system that is capable of not only detecting target location, but also measuring its velocity. Moving target indication (MTI) is a mode of operation of a radar to discriminate a target against clutter. Radar design and system engineers need to understand these essential topics, and this newly revised and updated edition of the classic Artech House book, "MTI and Pulsed Doppler Radar", offers professionals a complete and current presentation of the subject.Moreover, this unique resource provides clear descriptions and characteristics of modern Doppler radars that cannot be found in any other book. The second edition includes a new interactive CD-ROM with MATLAB software that saves practitioners time while working on challenging projects in the field. CD-ROM is included in this title! It contains time-saving MATLAB software that serves as a valuable tool for the analysis and design of "MTI and Pulsed Doppler Radar". The disc also includes several full-color images that support key topics discussed in the book.
D. Curtis Schleher served as a professor emeritus at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterrey, California. He is the author of several classic books, including Electronic Warfare in the Information Age and MTI and Pulsed Doppler Radar (Artech House, 1999, 1991). Dr. Schleher holds an M.S. from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn and a Ph.D. from Polytechnic University.
