Written by a leading global expert on the topic, High Frequency Over-the-Horizon Radar provides in-depth coverage of the signal processing models and techniques that have significantly advanced OTH radar technology. This pioneering work describes the fundamental principles of OTH radar design and operation, and then delves into the mathematical modeling of HF signals received by actual OTH radar systems based on experimental data analysis. Numerous examples illustrate the practical application of modern adaptive signal processing techniques to real and simulated OTH radar data.
This authoritative text covers skywave and surface-wave systems and is an invaluable resource for researchers, engineers, and practitioners working with OTH radar systems and technologies.
- Offers a thorough and accurate treatment of essential concepts ranging from system design and operation, through to signal processing methods, and their practical application.
- Provides clear explanations of fundamental principles for scientists, engineers, students, practitioners, technicians, managers, and other professionals starting out in this field.
- Offers a detailed coverage of theoretical and applied signal-processing concepts and techniques that have become a cornerstone for the effective operation of real-world OTH radar systems.
- Fills a long-standing void in the contemporary OTH radar literature with over 350 illustrations (color figures available for download), and over 500 references.

About the Author
Giuseppe Aureliano Fabrizio, Ph.D., is with the Defence Science and Technology Organization (DSTO) in Australia, where he is responsible for the EW and adaptive signal processing section of the high frequency radar branch. Dr Fabrizio is the scientific lead for the development, testing, and implementation of robust signal-processing techniques to enhance the operational performance of modern OTH radar systems. Dr. Fabrizio is a co-recipient of the prestigious Barry Carlton Award for the best paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems (AES) in a calendar year on two occasions2003 and 2004. In 2007, he received the coveted DSTO Science Excellence award in recognition of his contributions to adaptive signal processing for Australia’s Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN). Dr. Fabrizio has delivered OTH radar tutorials at the 2008 IEEE Radar Conference in Rome, at the 2010 IEEE International Radar Conference in Washington DC, and at the 2013 Radar Conference in Ottawa. He is an Australian representative on the IEEE International Radar Systems Panel, and is currently serving as VP of Education on the AES Board of Governors. Dr. Fabrizio was selected as the recipient of the distinguished IEEE Fred Nathanson Memorial Radar Award in 2011 for his contributions to OTH radar and radar signal processing.
