Cognitive radar (CR) refers to radar that is capable of interacting intelligently with its environment by adapting both its transmit and receive functions based on contextual awareness and expert reasoning. Chronicling the new field, this cutting-edge resource provides an accessible introduction to the theory and applications of CR, and presents a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in this emerging area. The first book on the subject, this unique volume covers important breakthroughs in advanced radar systems, and offers new and powerful methods for combating difficult clutter environments. Professionals find details on specific algorithmic and real-time high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) architectures. This practical book is supported with numerous examples that clarify key topics, and includes more than 370 equations.
