Advanced Array Systems, Applications and RF Technologies (Signal Processing and Its Applications)by Nicholas Fourikis
Synopses & Reviews
Advanced Array Systems, Applications and RF Technologies adopts a holistic view of arrays used in radar, electronic warfare, communications, remote sensing and radioastronomy. Radio frequency (RF) and intermediate frequency (IF) signal processing is assuming a fundamental importance, owing to its increasing ability to multiply a system's capabilities in a cost-effective manner. This book comprehensively covers the important front-end RF subsystems of active phased arrays, so offering array designers new and exciting opportunities in signal processing.
* provides an up to date record of existing systems from different applications
* explores array systems under development
* bridges the gap between textbook coverage of idealized phased arrays and practical knowledge of working phased arrays
* recognises the significance of cost to the realization of phased arrays
* discusses future advances in the field that promise to deliver even more affordable arrays ['intelligent' or self-focussing/-cohering arrays]
Book News Annotation:
For radar engineers and scientists with an interest in phased array systems, Australian-based Fourikis describes current systems and their precursors and systems that are in the proposal, planning, or development stage. He focuses especially on processing signals derived from active array systems at their radio-intermediate frequency. He assumes a context of systems performing radar and electronic warfare or communications functions, or devoted to deriving radiometric images of celestial sources or of the earth's surface.
