Developed by recognized experts in the field, this first-of-its-kind resource provides an overview of the basic principles of passive radar technology, real passive radar systems and new developments in the industry. It explains in-depth how passive radar works and how it differs from the active type, while demonstrating the benefits and drawbacks of the technology. The book also explores properties of ambiguity functions, digital vs. analog, digitally-coded waveforms, vertical-plane coverage, and satellite-borne and radar illuminators. The book functions as a practical guide on direct signal suppression, passive radar performance prediction and detection and tracking. It contains concrete examples of systems and results, including analog TV, FM radio, cell phone base stations, DVB-T and DAB, HF skywave transmissions, indoor WiFi and low-cost scientific remote sensing.
