This book is a treatise on EW receivers that is relevant to you if you are just looking for a top-level insight into EW receivers or need to know the intricate details of cause and effect behavior in EW receiver theory and design. The book begins with a general discussion of EW receivers in their functional context and then goes into just the right amount of detail about the theoretical characteristics common to all receiver designs. Examples of this include receiver design issues impacting probability of detection, false alarm rate, and dynamic range performance. Tsui then describes the important characteristics of key emitter parameters to be measured by an EW receiver. He goes on to systematically cover each of the types of EW receivers by dedicating a chapter to each in well-organized and exquisite detail.
