Among his accomplishments is his leadership in designing advanced airport surveillance radars, making air travel safer. Brookner has played a key role in many major radar and phased-array radar systems developed during the past 40 years. His teaching and lecturing have inspired and educated several generations of radar engineers worldwide, over 10, have attended his lectures. At Raytheon, he has been a leader or advisor to over 20 major radar programs for civil and defense applications. During these programs he demonstrated exceptional technical leadership, devising less-expensive and better-performing alternatives to products on the market or on the drawing board. From to , he was the technical lead on virtually all major U.

A unique, easy-to-use guide to radar tracking and Kalman filtering This book presents the first truly accessible treatment of radar tracking; Kalman, Swerling, and Bayes filters for linear and nonlinear ballistic and satellite tracking systems; and the voltage-processing methods Givens, Householder, and Gram-Schmidt for least-squares filtering to correct for computer round-off errors.
Tracking and Kalman Filtering Made Easy emphasizes the physical and geometric aspects of radar filters as well as the beauty and simplicity of their mathematics. An abundance of design equations, procedures, and curves allows readers to design tracking filters quickly and test their performance using only a pocket calculator!
The text incorporates problems and solutions, figures and photographs, and astonishingly simple derivations for various filters. It tackles problems involving clutter returns, redundant target detections, inconsistent data, track-start and track-drop rules, data association, matched filtering, tracking with chirp waveform, and more.
The book also covers useful techniques such as the moving target detector MTD clutter rejection technique. Peter Swerling Tracking and Kalman Filtering Made Easy is invaluable for engineers, scientists, and mathematicians involved in tracking filter design.
Its straightforward approach makes it an excellent textbook for senior-undergraduate and first-year graduate courses. This book provides an introduction to the principles of phased array antenna design. It is a set of 12 lecture notes that originally accompanied a series of intensive short courses presented in the mids. With an explicitly tutorial approach, this book offers a concise, introductory-level survey of the fundamentals without dwelling on extensive mathematical derivations or abstruse theory.
Its presentation focuses on step-by-step design procedures and provides practical results using extensive curves, tables and illustrative examples.
