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 current radiator antenna design
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.

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.
