    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.

    Hai Deng earned a PhD in electrical engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas, USA, in 2000. He has been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Florida International University (FIU), Miami, Florida, USA, since 2009. Prior to his tenure at FIU, he was also a faculty member in Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of New Orleans, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, and the University of North Texas, Denton, Texas, USA. His research interests include radar systems, waveform design, signal processing, artificial intelligence, and radar networks.

    Zhe Geng earned dual BS degrees (magna cum laude) in electrical engineering at FIU, Miami, Florida, USA, and Hebei University of Technology, Tianjin, China, in 2012. She also earned a PhD in electrical engineering at FIU in 2018. From 2018 to 2019, she was a research scientist at Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, USA. In December 2019, Dr. Geng joined the College of Electronic and Information Engineering, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA), where she is currently an associate professor. She was the recipient of FIU’s most prestigious awards for entering doctoral students, the FIU Presidential Fellowship. Her research interests include distributed MIMO radar and joint radar-communications systems.

    "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."
