Microwave And Radar Engineering is designed for undergraduate engineering students. It covers the fundamentals of these disciplines, and shows how their concepts are applied to make defence and telecom products.
Summary Of The Book
Microwave And Radar Engineering, published in 2009, is in its fourth edition. It introduces undergraduate students to a range of topics which fall under these branches of engineering.
Microwave engineering is a stream that concerns itself with the study and design of microwave circuits, components, and systems. Microwaves are those electromagnetic waves that are above 1 Gigahertz and up to 300 Gigahertz. These are short wavelengths, and the basics of this subject are covered in Maxwell’s equations, William Thompson’s waveguide theory, work of Heinrich Hertz, and others. The applications of microwaves are many, and are used in remote sensing, radar, antennas, and transmission lines. To locate enemy aircrafts and ships, microwave engineering was used as radar during World War II. Radar Engineering thus explains the various components of radar, and how it works in order to detect moving objects. This field of study helps in understanding obstructions, as well as determining the position of any object.
Microwave and Radar Engineering covers Microwave Engineering, and then narrows down to Radar Engineering. The author showcases many examples of where these technologies are used. Clear and precise, this book speaks of the defence and telecom industries, and the importance of advanced technologies in these domain. Undergraduate students will find this book to be very useful in understanding the subject. Written in a lucid manner, and in a language that is easy to comprehend, Microwave and Radar Engineering is a great book to study from.
