Bistatic Radars by Mikhail Cherniakov

Book Description

Bistatic radars have been a focus of study since the earliest days of radar research. Despite this, until recently only a few bistatic systems have crossed the experimental study threshold, and, consequently there is little knowledge about them compared with their monostatic counterparts. Now, there is a fast growing interest in bistatic radar, due to its importance in the development of defence, remote sensing, aerospace, meteorological and navigation application fields, as well as its unique pecularities. These include covert operational ability relevant to the receiver position, counter-stealth ability, and a potentially reduced cost as one transmitter can be used to send information to several receivers. With contributions from international experts working with bistatic radar, this book provides an introduction to the technology, covering information on basic principles and design. Starting with a detailed look at monostatic radar, examining the development of the field as a whole, the book then goes on to: * introduce the classical aspects of bistatic radar such as geometry, power budget and resolution; * present an in depth analysis of bistatic scattering of electromagnetic waves; * provide an overview of the bistatic radar potential which follows from their bistatic nature; * discuss forward scattering radar; * investigate forward scattering radar for air targets detection and tracking; * set out an experimental study of real world forward scattering radar. Bistatic Radar: Principles and Practice gives an up-to-date overview of this important technology for practising engineers and researchers involved in the design and implementation of bistatic radar in a range of industries. It is also a valuable reference for advanced students taking special courses in radar technology.

Bistatic Radars by Mikhail Cherniakov Bistatic Radars, Hardback (February 2008)

The impact of bistatic radar technology on remote sensing is increasing as bistatic systems cross the theoretical threshold into practical embodiment. The wide spectrum of radar applications, including space exploration, defence, transport, aerospace, and meteorology, provides persistent impetus for this progress.

Introduction to Parametric Digital Filters and Oscillators by Mikhail Cherniakov Introduction to Parametric Digital Filters and Oscillators, Hardback (June 2003)

Dedicated to Time Variant Filtering, this work provides an introduction to the theory and practice of one of the subclasses of time varying digital systems, parametric digital filters and oscillators. It presents many examples demonstrating the application of the techniques. It is also suitable for postgraduate students on courses in computer.

Author Biography - Mikhail Cherniakov

Mikhail Cherniakov joined the Communications Engineering Group at the University of Birmingham in 2000, and is now Senior Lecturer in Communications, as well as head of the Microwave Integrated System Laboratory. His research here is dedicated to various aspects of bistatic radar, as well as the integration of wireless technologies. Previous to this he has been involved in a wide range of research projects, including defence electronics, and radar and mobile communication at the University of Queensland, Australia, and at the Moscow Institute of Electronics Engineering, Russia. Over the last 30 years, he has headed numerous lecture courses on Radar Systems, Satellite Communications, Digital Communiations and Advanced Communication Systems. He has written the book An Introduction to Parametric Digital Filters and Oscillators (Wiley, 2003), and over 140 technical papers.
