Stimson's Introduction to Airborne Radar, Hardback Book

Stimson's Introduction to Airborne Radar Hardback

Edited by Hugh D. Griffiths, Christopher J. Baker, Dave Adamy

Part of the Radar, Sonar and Navigation series



Completely modernized, greatly expanded, but retaining all the magic of the 2nd edition, Introduction to Airborne Radar has been brought into the 21st century without losing the hallmarks that made George Stimson's previous editions unique.

Every chapter has been updated to reflect the constant transformations in radar technology and end-of-chapter exercises have also been added, improving its employment as a textbook. Over 100 radar and EW experts from around the world were involved in reviewing, writing, and editing this book, each one a longtime user of the previous editions.

Each one of them was tasked with making sure this third edition lives up to its legacy of 'Introduction.' Stimson's is written specifically as an overview without going overboard on the math.

Virtually anyone with a knowledge of high school algebra, trigonometry, and physics will be able to read and absorb the vast majority of the material.

The first 17 chapters provide fundamentals that can be used by air, ground, and sea-based personnel.

Every chapter provides extensive fundamental materials and practical applications, using visual system exemplars to aid explanations.

The unique full color layout is enhanced with an immense number of illustrations, figures, tables, and color photographs. Key features: Modernized to reflect changes in the past 20 years including electronic scanning antennas and high resolution imaging. Completely covers the wide range of techniques employed in modern airborne and space borne radars. Fundamentals are applicable to ground and sea-based radar. Clear, understandable writing supplemented by extensive graphic illustration of concepts and offset boxes taking those concepts to the next level. Community reviewed by over 100 radar experts from organizations worldwide.
