Good Books for Radar

  1. Oct 4, 2006 #1

    I am trying to learn about radar principles and functions. Although I have some DSP and communication background, it is still a very difficult subject by itself. I am trying to learn the basic stuffs such as MTI, doppler radar, tracking, pulse compression, probability of false alarm and detection, etc. from Skolnik's "Introduction to Radar Systems", but I feel Skolnik's book is not the ideal book for me. I am a more mathematical type of person and am looking for a book that would derive the equations from a more fundamental level and in more details. I read recommendations from Amazon for Mahafza's "Radar Systems Analysis and Design using Matlab" which seems to suggest it is easier to follow, does anyone have experience with this book or has some other suggestions for books with clear derivations of results? Thanks.
