Synopsis: Sue Robertson is a defense consultant with more than 20 years of experience in ESM analysis and system optimization. In "Practical ESM Analysis" she draws upon her decades of experience and expertise to provide an authoritative resource for students and technicians involved with electronic warfare with a complete instructional textbook that considers radar parameters and how they affect ESM systems.

"Practical ESM Analysis" 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. "Practical ESM Analysis" also describes ESM Antenna separation, which plays a significant part in the generation of DOA errors, with examples of the effects for different situations.

Critique: Expertly organized and presented, "Practical ESM Analysis" is an comprehensive and unreservedly recommended textbook and should be considered a core addition to college and university library Electronic Warfare collection and supplemental studies curriculum lists. It should be noted for students, academia, corporate ESM engineers, that "Practical ESM Analysis" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $135.85).
