PRLog - Jun. 1, 2012 - BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Providing a practical review of the latest technology in the field, Ultrawideband Radar Applications and Design presents cutting-edge advances in theory, design, and practical applications of ultrawideband (UWB) radar. This book features contributions from an international team of experts to help readers learn about a wide range of UWB topics, including:

   History of the technology

   American and European governmental regulations and key definitions

   Nonsinusoidal wave propagation theory

   Random signal radar

   Object detection by ground permittivity measurements

   Large-target backscattering effects

   Medical applications

   Large current radiator antenna design

   Materials-penetrating theory

   Radar signal processing

   Weak-signal detection methods

   Holographic and real time radar imaging

This book’s contributors use practical information to illustrate the latest theoretical developments and demonstrate UWB radar principles through case studies. Radar system engineers will find ideas for precision electronic sensing systems for use in medical, security, industrial, construction, and geophysical applications, as well as those used in archeological, forensic and transportation operations.

Praise for Ultrawideband Radar: Applications and Design

James Taylor has collected a strong collection of international contributors who can thoroughly articulate the difficulties with the development of ultrawideband (UWB) radars. … The text provides insight into practical design of waveforms that have low probability of detection, and efficient waveform ambiguity properties for detecting fixed and moving targets.
—Mark E. Davis, Medavis Consulting, New York

About the Author

James D. Taylor serves as the chairman of the IEEE Ultrawideband Radar Committee. He earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering at the Virginia Military Institute in 1963 and master’s degree at the Air Force Institute of Technology and served as an officer in the US Army and Air Force until 1991. During the 1980s he worked with the defense planners who promoted nonsinusoidal radar systems and coined the term ultrawideband. After retiring he edited and co-authored Introduction to Ultra-Wideband Radar Systems (1995) and Ultra-Wideband Radar Technology (2000) for CRC Press. He served as editor and lexicographer of IEEE STD 1762 Standard for Ultrawideband Radar Definitions. He lives in Ponte Vedra, Florida, USA as a gentleman engineer, UWB radar consultant, and technical writer.
