This book systematically describes advanced metric wave radar and its practical applications, offering a comprehensive introduction to the engineering design methods from the perspectives of system design, antenna/feed and transmit/receive subsystems, as well as mechanical structure design. Focusing on the height-finding method, it describes in detail how the super-resolution technique can be used to solve the problem of low-angle height finding in metric wave radar. It also discusses the anti-jamming method for the unique jamming environment. Further, it presents narrowband target recognition methods to overcome the limitations of narrow absolute bandwidth in metric wave radar and to further explore the technique's potential. Cooperative detection for metric wave radar netting is also addressed, and the main experimental results are included. The book offers a valuable resource for professional engineers, researchers and teachers, as well as graduate students engaged in radar system engineering, electronic engineering, and signal processing.
Wu Jianqi was born in Yibin, Sichuan, China in 1966.
