This first-of-its-kind handbook serves as a comprehensive, systematic reference to the major mathematical models used in radio engineering and communications, and presents computer simulation algorithms to help you estimate parameters of radio systems. It provides you with the technical details necessary to confidently design and analyze radar, communication, radio navigation, radio control, electronic intelligence, and electronic warfare systems.

Mathcad routines, cited in the handbook, help you optimize radar system performance analysis, and can be used to create custom-made software that better answers your specific needs. From discussions on the mathematical modeling in radio engineering?to coverage of radar system models, this unique guide saves you time by gathering the critical information you need in one handy volume. Plus, it offers many methods and algorithms that have been previously available in Russian-language resources only. Extensively supported with over 2,290 equations and 270 illustrations.
