  • Description
  • Contents

This unique book is the result of 20 years of research at the MIT Lincoln Lab. Billingsley actually solves the problem of radar land clutter by showing the reader how to design and predict the performance of radars that operate in situations where echoes from the earth's surfance interfere with radar target echoes. It unifies and integrates results to create a comprehensive, innovative and unequalled work. The results enable greater and more consistent prediction of land clutter effects in surface radar, needed for low-flying aircraft. The book contains 310 figures and 140 tables, some in full colour. It will be a landmark reference for all in the radar, defence and aviation industries.
