Radar networks are increasingly regarded as an efficient approach to enhancing radar capabilities in the face of popular anti-radar techniques and hostile operating environments. Reader-friendly and self-contained, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the latest radar networking technologies. The text addresses basic, relevant aspects of radar signal processing and statistical theories, including both civilian and military radar applications. It also discusses emerging topics that directly relate to networks such as Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) radars, waveform design and diversity via multiple transmitters. Other covered topics include target recognition and imaging using radar networks.
