Obviously the applications mentioned in this chapter are just a sampling of radar based persistent surveillance. Also, the descriptions have left out many details necessary for understanding, analysis and design. Some of the basics will be discussed in the chapters that follow. Hopefully, the reader will have a good intuitive feel for all the important aspects of Intercept, GMTI and SAR by the end of this introductory book. The references and appendices will provide more detail on many of the topics in this book.
