Has any technical book, radar or otherwise, presented the fundamentals and applications of a topic with such clarity and interest as George Stimson's masterpiece has? Over 50,000 happy Stimson owners would say, "not likely!" Now a skilled a respected team of radar and EW engineers, working closely with a community of radar advisors and the publisher's editors, have fully modernized coverage and maintained the unique Stimson look and feel. Even the timeless principles and core fundamentals of general radar have been updated in wording and new graphics, while the more advanced concepts and applications in airborne radar have been brought into the digital age of radar signal processing and solid state electronics. Stimson s is written specifically as an overview without going overboard on the math. Virtually anybody with a knowledge of high school algebra, trigonometry, and physics will be able to read and absorb the vast majority of the material. Living up to its moniker of Introduction, Stimson s contains 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 Completely covers the wide range of techniques employed in modern airborne and space borne radars. Fulfills the needs of those who want to learn about radar, regardless of their technical background. Fundamentals are applicable to ground-based radar as well. Clear, understandable writing supplemented by extensive graphic illustration of concepts and offset boxes taking those concepts to higher levels. All chapters have been modified, some heavily, to remove legacy material and include modern radar techniques. Two new sections have been added, covering electronic warfare, and special/advanced topics. AUDIENCE Military pilots, radar intercept officers, ground crews, and avionics technicians Radar engineers and technicians Students in radar, aviation, and aeronautics (end of chapter exercises now included for undergraduate and industry training courses) Radar marketing and sales personnel CHANGES FROM THE SECOND EDITION Completely modernized, greatly expanded, but not changed. The true essence of Stimson s is found in the high quality illustrations, the straightforward writing style, and ability for readers to use both to quickly understand the concepts within each chapter. These hallmarks have been meticulously maintained in the third edition by an expansive community of editors, authors, and reviewers. Community Reviewed - Over 100 radar experts from organizations worldwide have played a key role in reviewing this book to ensure the memory of George Stimson is honored throughout. Each reviewer was carefully picked for their knowledge, longtime use, and love of the first and second editions. Modernized - The third edition reflects the major changes in radar systems of the last 15-20 years. These changes include rewording current text and adding new material to show the much more routine adopting of electronic scanning and high resolution imaging, together with much greater use of digital technology. Expanded - Two new sections have been added including six chapters on electronic warfare, and seven chapters on special topics and advanced techniques.
