Introduction to Adaptive Arrays, 2nd Edition by Robert Monzingo, Randy Haupt, Thomas Miller
This is an extensive modernization of the bestselling introduction to adaptive array sensor systems of over a decade ago. If you are involved in radar, sonar, communications, seismology, and radio astronomy; this is a critical reference you will use for years to come.
Principles of Waveform Diversity and Design edited by Michael Wicks et al This is the FIRST book to discuss current and future applications of waveform diversity and design for radar, sonar, communications, passive sensing, and many other technologies. The contributors list is a veritable “Who’s Who” of this subject.
Analog Circuit Design Series by Dennis Feucht This four volume set of books (also available separately) is designed to reduce the concepts of analog electronics to their simplest form, helping you apply the knowledge with minimal effort to your own designs.
Test and Evaluation of Aircraft Avionics and Weapons Systems by Robert McShea This wildly popular book is a text and practical reference for all personnel involved in avionics and weapons systems evaluation and testing, in the air and on the ground. The author is an instructor and director at the National Test Pilot School in Mojave.
Fundamentals of Wave Phenomena, 2nd Edition by Akira Hirose and Karl Lonngren This textbook covers both mechanical and electrical waves, focusing on the similarities instead of the differences, allowing students and readers to fornulate a unified understanding of wave phenomena in its totality. An excellent primer for anyone in Physics, Electrical, Mechanical, or Civil Engineering, and Mathematics as well.
by Charles Hawkins & Jaume Segura
This undergraduate textbook is dedicated solely to digital CMOS electronics, covering the same topics as grad level textbooks, but in an introductory style crafted for undergrads. Students will not need a prerequisite in analog electronics.
Numerical Methods for Engineering: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Computational Electromagnetics Examples by Karl Warnick This text/reference teaches readers to create computer codes used to engineer antennas, microwave circuits and other critical technologies for wireless communications and other applications of electromagnetics fields and waves.
|Coming in 2011
Principles of Modern Radar: Advanced Radar Techniques by Wiliam Melvin and James Scheer
The 2nd volume in the POMR series, this book will be a stepping stone to advanced practice with in-dept discussions of the most important application areas in current radar practice. It will provide concise descriptions of the purposes, principal issues, and methods found in a wide variety of current radar types.
Foliage Penetration Radar: Detection and Characterization of Objects Under Trees by Mark E. Davis This book will cover all aspects of foliage penetration (FOPEN) radar, concentrating on both airborne military radar systems as well as earth resource mapping radars for use in crop monitoring, land mine remediation, and creating digital maps under trees.
Electronic Warfare Pocket Guide by David Adamy
Users will be able to work real world EW problems that come up every day in concept development, technique development, system design and testing, operational testing, mission planning and operations. All in your shirt (and uniform) pocket. A digital application for smart phones is also being developed.
Introduction to Biomechatronics by Graham Brooker This text/reference will address essential mechatronic concepts including sending and actuation, feedback and control, as well as signal processing from a biological perspective. Discussion of concepts leads to their use in applications such as hearing prosthetics, electrocardiography, artifical hearts, prosthetic limbs and much more.
Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar Imaging by Victor Chen and Marco Martorella
This book will provide readers a working knowledge of the various algorithms of ISAR imaging of targets and implementation with MATLAB. It introduces basic principles of radar backscattering, radar imaging, and signal analysis and then moves on the many applications of ISAR imaging for air, sea, and ground targets.
Technologies for Active Electronically Scanned Arrays by Terry Edwards This book will provide the basic principles of AESAs and then fully detail the practical enabling technologies that make up the state-of-the-art and next generation systems. AESAs are THE news in radar and there is a lack of a comprehensive, deep treatment on the market. This book will fill that void.
Radio Receiver Design, 2nd Edition by Kevin McClaning, Tom Vito, and James McPherson
This book is a complete revision of the bestselling first edition, teaching readers on how to transfer the theory of wireless communications systems and apply it to practical design of real world systems. It will be a wireless design reference resource for students and professionals alike. Practial, proven concepts clarify the role of each component within the design in this book written by engineers, for engineers.
Electromagnetic Field Standards and Exposure Systems by Hubert Trzaska and Pavel Bienkowski This book is devoted to the electromagnetic field (EMF) measurements in the aspect of labor safety and environmental protection. It is addressed to a wide range of specialists in biology, medicine, labor safety, environmental protection, metrologists, EMF meter designers, testers and users. It is intended to help standardize EMF measurements by discussing the factors that cause varied results in like test situations.
Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetics
by John Volakis and Kubilay Sertel
This text/reference covers the workhorse of electromagnetic analysis, integral equation methods. It is a comprehensive approach to understanding the utility of these methods for both developers and practitioners. It is a much more detailed look than current references which also is the first to discuss material modeling and fast integral equation methods.
