Artech House announced the publication "Practical ESM Analysis," by Sue Robertson. Written by a prominent expert in the field, this authoritative resource considers radar parameters and how they affect ESM systems. It describes the ESM environment, including types of radar, pulse density, the latest radar developments and how they will be seen by ESM systems. Different types of ESM systems are described, with methods of calculation of Direction of Arrival (DOA) of pulses. Conventional wisdom about RF scan strategies for narrow-band receivers will be challenged and new methods (proven to be effective in trials) will be proposed. The book describes ESM Antenna separation, which plays a significant part in the generation of DOA errors, with examples of the effects for different situations.

The book will explain the common phenomena seen in ESM systems with many examples of how to recognize issues in the ESM data and solutions for their mitigation. Techniques for visualizing ESM data and how to set up ESM trials will be given, including the simulation of the electromagnetic environment. The book also presents detailed calculations for generating emitter beam-shapes for use in simulations of pulse trains and the calculation of detection range will be useful for data analysts, trials engineers and system assessors, which are not published elsewhere. The identification of radars by ESM systems is considered in detail with ideas presented on how to generate an effective radar library.

"Practical ESM Analysis" is available now from Artech House, a leading publisher of books for professionals in high-technology industries.
