Principles of Modern Radar: Basic Principles is a comprehensive and modern textbook for courses in radar systems and technology at the college senior and graduate student level; a professional training textbook for formal in-house courses for new hires; a reference for ongoing study following a radar short course; and a self-study and professional reference book. Principles of Modern Radar focuses on four key areas: Basic concepts, such as the the radar range equation and threshold detection; radar signal phenomenology, such as radar cross section models, clutter, atmospheric effects, and Doppler effects; descriptions of all major subsystems of modern radars, such as the antenna, transmitter, receiver, including modern architectural elements such as exciters, and advanced signal processors; and signal and data processing basics, from digital signal processing (DSP) fundamentals, through detection, Doppler processing, waveforms and pulse compression, basic imaging concepts, and tracking fundamentals. While several established books address introductory radar systems, Principles of Modern Radar differs from these in its breadth of coverage, its emphasis on current methods (without losing sight of bedrock principles), and its adoption of an appropriate level of quantitative rigor for the intended audience of students and new professional hires. The manuscript for this book was reviewed by over 50 professionals in academia, military, and commercial enterprises. These reviewers were among thousands of potential users approached by the publisher and asked to share their expertise and experience in radar training and instruction. Their extensive comments, corrections, and insights ensure that Principles of Modern Radar will meet the needs of modern radar educators and students around the world. Written and edited by world-renowned radar instructors and critically reviewed by users before publication, this is truly a radar community-driven book.

After graduating with an BS in EE from Va-Tech, I managed to land a job involving radars. Coming in fresh, I decided to learn more about the subject at hand by investing some of my personal time on a book. I ran across this book after reading a fair amount of reviews.
This particular book contains a lot of information involving radar operations. It seems some great minds went into creating this exceptional book - all of them from GTRI. Even with an undergraduate level of understanding, I am able to pick up on all of the material covered. I haven't picked up any other material involving antenna theory or RF theory either.
The only downside to the book seems to be that there isn't any information involving most of the common scan types. It would have been great if I could've learned about Raster scans or Sector scans, for instance, without having to look elsewhere. Even so, I've managed to learn a great deal without starting a library yet and as such, I give...
An excellent introduction to fundamentals of radar and radar systems engineering. Each chapter is clearly written by an expert in the particular subject subject being discussed. Each chapter concludes with additional references and problems for the reader. The problems are a nice tool to test and extend the reader's understanding of the material. This is definitely the best radar textbook on the market today.
I have not finished reading this book, but so far of what I have read, it is excellent for someone new to the topic. For me, there appears to be sufficient technical rigor to be useful for engineering analysis. The book is very up to date with its graphics and topics discussed, without necessarily ignoring legacy topics. This text is probably not completely ideal for someone well versed in the topic, but might make a good "all 'rounder" type of reference. Deeper topics are covered in other textbooks of this nature.
