View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Since the publication of the second edition of "Introduction to Radar Systems," there has been continual development of new radar capabilities and continual improvements to the technology and practice of radar. This growth has necessitated the addition and updating of the following topics for the third edition: digital technology, automatic detection and tracking, doppler technology, airborne radar, and target recognition. The topic coverage is one of the great strengths of the text. In addition to a thorough revision of topics, and deletion of obsolete material, the author has added end-of-chapter problems to enhance the "teachability" of this classic book in the classroom, as well as for self-study for practicing engineers.

From the Publisher:

This edition now includes problems and/or questions at the end of each chapter to assist in self-study by practicing engineers and in the teaching of graduate-level courses. Most are numerical problems that help the reader reinforce what has been learned in the text. Some ask the reader to go beyond the text and give some thought to what they have learned and build upon it.
A complete solutions manual will be available with the new edition. In addition to worked out solutions, it will include a list of the term paper topics the author has used over the years in his graduate radar course to further challenge the students.
The book has been completely revised since the last edition. Almost every paragraph has had changes or been replaced entirely. The order of the chapters has been rearranged so as to reflect how the author covers the material in his own course. Many topics have been expanded from the second edition.
While there are many specialized courses on detailed electrical engineering subjects, there are very few that are concerned with the systems that are the reason electrical engineering exists. Radar is a classic example of an electronic engineering system that uses many specialized elements of technology practiced by electrical engineers, like signal processing, probability, antennas and receivers. All of these topics are covered in Skolnik, in addition to the standard radar topics.
