Through the semester I was struggling with "Radar Principles by Peyton Z. Peebles" and it was only towards the end of my semester, I got to know about this book by Mahafza. I ordered this book via Inter-Library Loan (ILL) not expecting all that much from it. Boy!!! was I in for a surprise... I wouldn't be doing justice if I simply said this book is awesome. This book became such a hot property, that I had to be forceful at times to get it from the never ending circulation of it amongst my classmates.

The reasons I liked the book very much for are as follows:-

1. It has an amazingly beautiful description of the concepts by delving into the basics and then building slowly and steadily upon it.

2. In the first chapter itself, after the immediate basics, the author introduces the criteria for the Radar that has to be designed. At the end of each chapter, the author refines the Radar design by incorporating the newly learned concepts, thus solidifying concepts newly learned in that chapter.

3. Almost every new concept introduced within a chapter, is followed by at least one solved example that is absolutely important to thoroughly understanding the topic.

4. Apart from the actual equations, the book gives the most accurate approximation method, so that the equation can be simulated in Matlab. You would otherwise be spending humongous amount of time threading through numerous IEEE papers and other resources to get the very same approximations.

5. Matlab code is included for all the figures generated in the book. Trust me; plotting some of the equations otherwise would easily take you more than a day or two.

I am a graduate student now and Radars is not going to be my principle area of research and work.

I have used both of Dr. Mahafza's previous radar books (1. Introduction to Radar Analysis and 2. Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB) as reference guides and study aids on a regular basis and realize this third book (that I have added to my Radar Book Reference collection) will get a lot of mileage. I had been looking for a book that provided a start to finish tutorial on radars. This book is right on the money. This book is truly an engineering reference for radar engineers. I have found the MATLAB code easy to understand and have used some of the examples in this book to assist me with my radar tasks. This book discusses topics that are important to all radar engineers such as Clutter Mitigation, Signal Processing, and Target Tracking. I recommend this book to anyone interested in radar and look forward to more quality radar related books by Dr. Mahafza and his associates.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very good analytic and predictive material throughout, covering a wide range of radar science. There is excellant simulation of tracking techniques, but tracking is the only topic with true simulation.
Much of this book covers the same material as the authors' "Radar Systems Analysys and Design Using Matalb". I would recommend this book instead of (but not in addition to) that one.
The Matlab code is freely available from the publisher's web site. It contains a few calls to functions that are not in the basic Matlab package. It would be helpful to have those replaced by equivalent, custom functions using the Matlab base package.
Overall I am very pleased with the book as a technical reference.

I found this book to be a great reference. The mfiles associated with this text are indeed helpful. It parallels the author's other text, Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB. I would recommend that you not buy both textbooks. As they are about 95% the same, just the ordering of the chatpers differs.

A must have for any engineer working with wanting to get into the industry. The quick references to MATLAB make creating simulations simple and useful to a very big project.
