An Introduction to Sonar Systems Engineering

An Introduction to Sonar Systems Engineering

Author: Lawrence J. (Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, USA) Ziomek Format: Hardback Release Date: 21/12/2016

Written in tutorial style, this textbook discusses the fundamental topics of modern day Sonar Systems Engineering for the analysis and design of both active and passive sonar systems. Included are basic signal design for active sonar systems and understanding underwater acoustic communication signals. Mathematical theory is provided, plus practical design and analysis equations for both passive and active sonar systems. Practical homework problems are included at the end of each chapter and a solutions manual and lecture slides for each chapter are available for adopting professors.

Digital Sonar Design in Underwater Acoustics Principles and Applications

Digital Sonar Design in Underwater Acoustics Principles and Applications

Author: Qihu Li Format: Hardback Release Date: 23/11/2011

Digital Sonar Design in Underwater Acoustics Principles and Applications provides comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of research on sonar design, including the basic theory and techniques of digital signal processing, basic concept of information theory, ocean acoustics, underwater acoustic signal propagation theory, and underwater signal processing theory. This book discusses the general design procedure and approaches to implementation, the design method, system simulation theory and techniques, sonar tests in the laboratory, lake and sea, and practical validation criteria and methods for digital sonar design. It is intended for researchers in the fields of underwater signal processing and sonar design, and also for navy officers and ocean explorers. Qihu Li is a professor at the Institute of Acoustics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Sonar for Practising Engineers

Sonar for Practising Engineers

Author: A. D. Waite Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/03/2002

The first book exclusively on sonar and sonar technology. Written by an engineer (with over 40 years of experience in the field) for engineers. Taking an engineering approach rather than a physics/math one it provides an understanding of the basic principles of sonar and develops the formulae and rules of thumb for sonar design and performance analysis.

Radar Principles

Radar Principles

Author: Peyton Z. Peebles Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/09/1998

A comprehensive introduction to radar principles This volume fills a need in industry and universities for a comprehensive introductory text on radar principles. Well-organized and pedagogically driven, this book focuses on basic and optimum methods of realizing radar operations, covers modern applications, and provides a detailed, sophisticated mathematical treatment. Author Peyton Z. Peebles, Jr., draws on an extensive review of existing radar literature to present a selection of the most fundamental topics. He clearly explains general principles, such as wave propagation and signal theory, before advancing to more complex topics involving aspects of measurement and tracking. The last chapter provides a self-contained treatment of digital signal processing, which can be explored independently. Ample teaching and self-study help is incorporated throughout, including: Numerous worked-out examples illustrating radar theory Many end-of-chapter problems Hundreds of illustrations, including system block diagrams, demonstrating how radar functions are achieved Appended review material and useful mathematical formulas An extensive bibliography and references. An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department. Radar Principles is destined to become the standard text on radar for graduate and senior-level courses in electrical engineering departments as well as industrial courses. It is also an excellent reference for engineers who are typically required to learn radar principles on the job, and for anyone working in radar-related industries as well as in aerospace and naval research.
