Practical coverage of installing, maintaining, and repairing land-, air-, and sea-based radar systems is provided in this much-needed guide for professional electronics repair technicians - both civilian and military. The author explains how radar systems are used, then covers basic radar principles and concepts, the major subassemblies that comprise a radar system, how a waveguide functions, electronic components used for microwave transmission, what MTI is and how it works, the importance of system timing, different types of radar displays, the significance of system location, and radar limitations. The technology of radar, used for everything from weather forecasting and air traffic control to microwave ovens and X-ray equipment, has become essential to modern life. By filling a gap in the technical literature, this book is likely to become a definitive guide for electronics technicians.
