Radar System Analysis
Dedham, MA: Artech House, Inc., 1979. Reprint edition, second printing [stated]. Hardcover. , 608,  pages. Footnotes. Figures. Formulae. Tables. List of Symbols Used. Bibliography and References. Index. This is one of the Artech Radar Library of which Mr. Barton was also the series editor. An earlier edition Radar System Analysis was published in 1964 that was originally part of the Prentice-Hall Microwaves and Fields series and their Electrical Engineering series. This new version has been printed to provide copies to engineers who have newly entered the radar system field and also to correct both substantive and typographical errors in the original. David Knox Barton (born 1927 in Greenwich, Connecticut) is an American radar systems engineer who has made significant contributions to air defense, missile guidance, monopulse radar, low-altitude tracking, air traffic control, and early warning radar. He had authored or edited a well-regarded series of reference books on radar engineering in the late 1970s. David Barton was one of the people behind the MIM-104 Patriot surface-to-air missile system. He was a consulting scientist with Raytheon for at least part of his distinguished career. System analysis is a problem-solving technique that breaks down a system into its component pieces for the purpose of the studying how well those component parts work and interact to accomplish their purpose. The field of system analysis relates closely to requirements analysis or to operations research. The terms analysis and synthesis stem from Greek, meaning "to take apart" and "to put together," respectively. These terms are used in many scientific disciplines, such as mathematics and logic, to denote similar investigative procedures. Analysis is defined as "the procedure by which we break down an intellectual or substantial whole into parts," while synthesis means "the procedure by which we combine separate elements or components in order to form a coherent whole." System analysis researchers apply methodology to the systems involved, forming an overall picture. System analysis is used in every field where something is developed. Condition: Very good.
