Abstract
MOST OF THE TECHNICAL LITERATURE IN RADAR IS WRITTEN FOR PROFESSIONALSIN THAT FIELD. THE PROPOSED RADAR EVALUATION HANDBOOK WILL CONTAIN TECHNICAL DATA AND PROCEDURES FOR RADAR EVALUATION, BUT WILL BE ADDRESSED TO THE NEEDS OF GENERALISTS FOR WHOM RADAR IS ONLY ONE OF MANY TECHNICAL DISCIPLINES NEEDED IN THEIR WORK. THE MATERIAL WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE NEW 2ND EDITION OF RADAR SYSTEM ANALYSIS, ALREADY PREPARED FOR PUBLICATION IN 1987. THIS TEXT HAS, SINCE 1964, BEEN ONE OF THE BASIC REFERENCE WORKS IN RADAR, AND THE ONLY ONE DIRECTED TOWARD ANALYSIS OF SYSTEM PERFORMANCE. TWO SIGNIFICANT CHANGES ARE NEEDED TO ADAPT THIS MANUSCRIPT FOR USE IN THE HANDBOOK: SELECTION AND REWRITING OF EXISTING MATERIAL FOR THE GENERALISTS, AND ADDITION OF MATERIAL SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED TOWARD THE 10-140 GHZ BANDS AND THEIR ARMY APPLICATIONS. THIS WILL INVOLVE NEW MATERIAL ON MM-WAVE CLUTTER AND TARGET CROSS SECTIONS, AIR-TO-GROUND RADARS ABOVE X-BAND, AND MULTIPATH EFFECTS IN THE MM-WAVE BANDS. IN ADDITION, ASPECTS OF WAVEFORM DESIGN AND MODERN DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR ARMY WEAPONS AND INSTRUMENTATION APPLICATIONS WILL BE COVERED.
