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 topics covered include target recognition and imaging using radar networks.

"Fundamentally, radar networks provide more information on a target scene than a single monostatic radar, but also have advantages in respect of flexibility and robustness, as well as improved resistance to jamming and countermeasures. A book that provides an introduction to the properties of this important new type of radar is, therefore, welcome...The style is quite theoretical, using graduate-level mathematics. Good use is made of diagrams to help present and explain the concepts...The book makes a useful contribution in an exciting and important new domain. It will be of value to graduate-level students, and researchers."
