4. Churchill's Shadow Raiders: The Race to Develop Radar, World War II's Invisible Secret Weapon

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Radar Technology - August 2021

From bestselling and award-winning war reporter Damien Lewis and for fans of Erik Larsen’s The Splendid and Vile and Alex Kershaw’s The Forgotten 500 comes a thrilling account of one of the most daring raids of WWII…the true story of the race to stop Hitler from developing a top-secret weapon that would change the course of history.   "One of the most readable World War 2 history books I have read in years” — We Are the Mighty In the winter of 1941, as Britain faced defeat on all fronts, an RAF reconnaissance pilot photographed an alien-looking object on the French coast near Le Havre. The mysterious device—a “Wurzburg Dish”—appeared to be a new form of radar technology: ultra-compact, highly precise, and pointed directly across the English Channel. Britain’s experts found it hard to believe the Germans had mastered such groundbreaking technology. But one young technician thought it not only possible, he convinced Winston Churchill that the dish posed a unique and deadly threat to Allied forces, one that required desperate measures—and drastic action . . .   Capturing the radar on film had been an amazing coup. Stealing it away from under the noses of the Nazis would be remarkable.    So was launched Operation Biting, a mission like no other. An extraordinary “snatch-and-grab” raid on Germany’s secret radar installation, it offered Churchill’s elite airborne force, the Special Air Service, a rare opportunity to redeem themselves after a previous failed mission—and to shift the tides of war forever. Led by the legendary Major John Frost, these brave paratroopers would risk all in a daring airborne assault, with only a small stretch of beach menaced by enemy guns as their exit point. With the help of a volunteer radar technician who knew how to dismantle the dish, as well as the courageous men and women of the French Resistance, they succeeded against all odds in their act of brazen robbery. Some would die. Others would be captured. All fought with resolute bravery . . .   This is the story of that fateful night of February 27, 1942. A brilliantly told, thrillingly tense account of Churchill’s raiders in their finest hour, this is World War II history at its heart-stopping best.   “This highly informative book almost reads like a genuine techno-thriller." — New York Journal of Books   “A little-known behind-the-lines spectacular led by two heroic British officers.” — Kirkus Reviews   “Anyone who wants to learn more about the origins of the British Special Forces should read this book.  It intertwines historical research and eyewitness testimony to tell the untold story of heroism, courage, and ingenuity.” — Military Press   “Lewis presents a richly detailed and nail-biting tale.”  — Library Journal

6. Principles of Modern Radar: Basic Principles

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Radar Technology - August 2021

Principles of Modern Radar: Basic Principles is a comprehensive and modern textbook for courses in radar systems and technology at the college senior and graduate student level; a professional training textbook for formal in-house courses for new hires; a reference for ongoing study following a radar short course; and a self-study and professional reference book. Principles of Modern Radar focuses on four key areas: Basic concepts, such as the the radar range equation and threshold detection Radar signal phenomenology, such as radar cross section models, clutter, atmospheric effects, and Doppler effects Descriptions of all major subsystems of modern radars, such as the antenna, transmitter, receiver, including modern architectural elements such as exciters, and advanced signal processors Signal and data processing basics, from digital signal processing (DSP) fundamentals, through detection, Doppler processing, waveforms and pulse compression, basic imaging concepts, and tracking fundamentals. While several established books address introductory radar systems, Principles of Modern Radar differs from these in its breadth of coverage, its emphasis on current methods (without losing sight of bedrock principles), and its adoption of an appropriate level of quantitative rigor for the intended audience of students and new professional hires. The manuscript for this book was reviewed by over 50 professionals in academia, military, and commercial enterprises. These reviewers were among thousands of potential users approached by the publisher and asked to share their expertise and experience in radar training and instruction. Their extensive comments, corrections, and insights ensure that Principles of Modern Radar will meet the needs of modern radar educators and students around the world. Written and edited by world-renowned radar instructors and critically reviewed by users before publication, this is truly a radar community-driven book.

7. Time-Frequency Transforms for Radar Imaging and Signal Analysis

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Radar Technology - August 2021

This text is a hands-on guide to time-frequency transforms for radar imaging and signal analysis. It explores more efficient ways to: extract dispersive scattering features; detect and extract weak signals in noise; form clear radar images; estimate parameters and perform motion compensation; detect and track moving targets in the synthetic aperture radar; and analyze vibration and rotation induced micro-Doppler. This resource introduces an image formation algorithm based on time-frequency-transforms, showing its advantage over the more conventional Fourier-based image formation. Referenced with over 170 equations and 80 illustrations, the book presents algorithms that help improve the result of radar imaging and signal processing. Moreover, the authors discuss future trends in time-frequency to analyze micro-Doppler, and provide a newly developed time-frequency approach to radar signal and image processing to help solve problems associated with conventional approaches.

9. Radar Workbook: Problems and Answers in Marine Radar Operations

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Radar Technology - August 2021

* For all radar users, recreational and professional. * Covers the use of radar for chart navigation, blind pilotage,and collision avoidance. This Workbook is designed to be used in classroom or online courses in radar, or for individual study outside of the classroom. The lesson structure follows that used by several schools in the US, based on the background reader Radar for Mariners by David Burch. The Appendix on advanced radar plotting is included for professional mariners who seek more practice on interpreting ARPA output by working out the vector solutions themselves. The ability to manually interpret the radar interactions seen on the screen, independent of electronic solutions, is in keeping with the fundamental tenet of good navigation and seamanship that we should not rely on any one aid alone.
