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.

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.
