Problem Solving 101 with Victor Chen

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 Mateusz Malanowski, who wrote Signal Processing for Passive Bistatic Radar had to say:

What are some problems your book can help readers solve?

  • Details on generating and analysis of micro-Doppler signature in the joint time-frequency domain.
  • Modeling and animating a human with movement, simulation of radar returns from the human, and generating micro-Doppler signature of the human with movement.
  • Modeling and animating a spinning, precession, and nutating symmetric top and reentry vehicle (RV) , simulation of radar returns from the top and the RV, and generating micro-Doppler signature of the spinning, precession, and nutating top and RV.
  • Modeling and animating rotating rotor blades of a helicopter and a quadcopter drone, simulation of radar returns from the rotor blades, and generating micro-Doppler signature of the rotor blades.
  • Modeling and animating wind turbine with blades, simulation of radar returns from the blades, and generating micro-Doppler signature of the wind turbine with blades.

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

Feature: Extraction of radar micro-Doppler signatures from a target with micromotions.

Benefit: Know how to generate micro-Doppler signatures from CW and FMCW radar signals using MATLAB source codes.

Feature: Method of modeling and animating non-rigid body motion (such as human walking and flying bird) and extracting radar micro-Doppler signatures of human gaiting and bird flapping.

Benefit: Know how to model human body and bird articulated motion and how to generate micro-Doppler signatures of human gait and flapping bird using provided MATLAB source codes.

Feature: Methods for modeling and studying rigid body micromotion (vibration and rotation) and extract radar micro-Doppler signatures of rigid body motions.

Benefit: Know how to model a rigid body micromotion (helicopter, drone, wind turbine and reentry vehicle) and how to generate radar micro-Doppler signatures of rigid body movements using provided MATLAB source codes.
