Product description

Definitive coverage of state-of-the-art over-the-horizon radar systems High Frequency Over-the-Horizon Radar provides comprehensive details on modern developments in high frequency over-the-horizon (OTH) radar by capturing significant advances made in this area over the past two decades. This authoritative text offers a thorough and accurate treatment of essential aspects, ranging from the physical principles of operation and system design issues, through to signal processing methods, and their practical application to live data recorded by actual OTH radar systems. The strength of the book is its clear explanation of the signal processing aspects, including mathematical descriptions of adaptive processing techniques, an area that has become a cornerstone for the effective operation of OTH radar. High Frequency Over-the-Horizon Radar: Is written by a leading global expert Reviews fundamental concepts: OTH radar principles, target types, radar missions Discusses sky-wave & surface-wave OTH radars and radar sub-systems Includes details on HF propagation medium Covers radar management, signal environment, and signal processing High frequency OTH radar in-depth: Fundamental Principles; Propagation Medium; System Architecture; Radar Sub-system; Signal Environment; Conventional Signal Processing; Adaptive Processing Techniques; Practical Applications

Author information

Giuseppe Aureliano Fabrizio, Ph.D., is with the Defence Science and Technology Organization (DSTO) in Australia, where he is responsible for the EW and adaptive signal processing section of the high frequency radar branch. Dr Fabrizio is the scientific lead for the development, testing, and implementation of robust signal-processing techniques to enhance the operational performance of modern OTH radar systems. Dr. Fabrizio is a co-recipient of the prestigious Barry Carlton Award for the best paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems (AES) in a calendar year on two occasions-2003 and 2004. In 2007, he received the coveted DSTO Science Excellence award in recognition of his contributions to adaptive signal processing for Australia's Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN). Dr. Fabrizio has delivered OTH radar tutorials at the 2008 IEEE Radar Conference in Rome, at the 2010 IEEE International Radar Conference in Washington DC, and at the 2013 Radar Conference in Ottawa. He is an Australian representative on the IEEE International Radar Systems Panel, and is currently serving as VP of Education on the AES Board of Governors. Dr. Fabrizio was selected as the recipient of the distinguished IEEE Fred Nathanson Memorial Radar Award in 2011 for his contributions to OTH radar and radar signal processing.
