Phased-Array Radar Design: Application of radar fundamentals — Recommend this title to your library

Thank you

A fundamental step in the design of phased-array radars is to allocate system-level radar requirements to hardware and software subsystems. This chapter addresses this topic for the hardware and software subsystems and components thereof that constitute the majority of phased-array radar systems.
