Problem Solving 101 with Rick Sturdivant

At Artech House, we ask our authors what problems their books can help readers solve. In this series, we share what our authors aim to do in their writing. Read on to find out what Rick Sturdivant, who, along with Clifton Quan and Enson Chang, wrote Systems Engineering of Phased Arrays had to say:

What are some problems your book can help readers solve?

The book Systems Engineering of Phased Arrays provides readers with the knowledge required for engineering phased arrays and helps solve five problems encountered by technical professionals. First, it provides architectures solutions that can be directly applied in practical systems. Second, it can solve antenna element design challenges by giving the reader information on how to design 10 different types of antennas. Third, the book guides the reader to solutions for transmit/receive modules. Fourth, it offers answers that can solve thermal management challenges commonly encountered in phased arrays. Fifth, the book offers the reader knowhow on the benefits and challenges of digital beam forming. These five solutions offer the technical professional technical help in systems engineering of phased arrays.

What are the features of your book and the specific benefits a reader can expect to derive from those features?  

  • The book provides 10 Different antenna element designs examples are provided. The reader will have options for choosing the optimum antenna solution for the particular phased arrays.
  • Phased array architectures are provided. The reader will understand the benefits and drawbacks of phased array architectures.
  • The thermal challenges in phased arrays and some solutions are presented. The reader is able to anticipate the thermal challenges in phased arrays.
