Artech House is pleased to announce the publications of two titles in January 2021.
The fifth book in the bestselling Artech House EW 100 series explores electronic warfare (EW) in space. Practical problems – including intercept and jamming of hostile signals transmitted from the Earth’s surface and the vulnerability of satellite links to attack from the Earth’s surface are discussed. Spherical trigonometry is covered to provide the background necessary to understand the scope of satellite problems. Orbit mechanics, specifically the way the Earth and its satellites revolve around one another, is also explained. The basics of radio propagation and how it applies to communications Electronic Warfare are demonstrated, as well as the special considerations that apply to radio transmission to and from an Earth satellite. Satellite links and link vulnerability are discussed.
Readers learn how to calculate the distance over which a satellite can view as a function of its orbital parameters, how long the satellite can see that point, and the frequency shift in signals received by the satellite or an Earth based receiver. EW applications of orbit mechanics, satellite links, radio propagation and link vulnerability. Written by an expert in the field, this book is useful for technical and non-technical professionals.
Real-time testing and simulation of open- and closed-loop radio frequency (RF) systems for signal generation, signal analysis and digital signal processing require deterministic, low-latency, high-throughput capabilities afforded by user reconfigurable field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). This comprehensive book introduces LabVIEW FPGA, provides best practices for multi-FPGA solutions, and guidance for developing high-throughput, low-latency FPGA based RF systems. Written by a recognized expert with a wealth of real-world experience in the field, this is the first book written on the subject of FPGAs for radar and other RF applications.
