This book, based on Transport and Urban Development COST Action TU1208, presents the most advanced applications of ground penetrating radar (GPR) in a civil engineering context, with documentation of instrumentation, methods and results. It explains clearly how GPR can be employed for the surveying of critical transport infrastructure, such as roads, pavements, bridges and tunnels and for the sensing and mapping of underground utilities and voids. Detailed attention is also devoted to use of GPR in the inspection of geological structures and of construction materials and structures, including reinforced concrete, steel reinforcing bars and pre/post-tensioned stressing ducts. Advanced methods for solution of electromagnetic scattering problems and new data processing techniques are also presented. Readers will come to appreciate that GPR is a safe, advanced, non destructive and noninvasive imaging technique that can be effectively used for the inspection of composite structures and the performance of diagnostics relevant to the entire life cycle of civil engineering works.

A four-arm spiral antenna offers broadband frequency response, wide beamwidths, reduced size compared to other antenna designs, and the ability to determine the relative direction of an incident signal with appropriate mode-forming. The reduced overall area projection of the four-arm spiral antenna compared to other antenna designs and the ability to be manufactured in a planar format allows the antenna to reside within an Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) fuselage. This thesis investigates the effects of cylindrically-conforming two different designs of a four-arm spiral antenna to reside within the fuselage of a medium-sized UAV. Theoretical predictions of antenna performance were created using the Numerical Electromagnetics Code (NEC) package and compared to measured results of flat and cylindrically-conformed four-arm spiral antennas with and without ground plane apertures.

Microwave Passive Direction Finding unifies direction finding (DF) theory and brings together into a single source wide-ranging information on the technology of measuring the direction-of-arrival of microwave signals. Throughout the material, there is authoritative information useful to preparing a detailed technical proposal for new business that has been compiled from many years of defense industry presentations, reports, and systems development. Diagrams and photographs of state-of-the-art equipment depict the methods discussed, and equations and charts facilitate a "hands-on" approach to calculating system performance. The book also presents rarely published systems concepts, such as digital preprocessing, supercommutation, and wide RF bandwidth signal detection methods. Specific sections cover evolution and use of monopulse passive DF receiver theory, design of antenna elements for conformal DF coverage, receiver configurations, DF antenna arrays, interferometer DF techniques, computation methods for signal detection, probability of detection, accuracy of DF systems, and signal processing and display methods. More than any book on this technology, Microwave Passive Direction Finding anticipates the questions that arise in the DF design process. The chapters are organized to stand alone, making the book useful as a text/reference for the practicing engineer. At the same time, the material is organized inductively, so that it can be used for a college or seminar text.

Printed antennas, also known as microstrip antennas, have a variety of beneficial properties including mechanical durability, conformability, compactness and cheap manufacturing costs. As such, they have a range of applications in both the military and commercial sectors, and are often mounted on the exterior of aircraft and spacecraft as well as incorporated into mobile radio communication devices. Printed Antennas for Wireless Communications offers a practical guide to state-of-the-art printed antenna technology used for wireless systems. Contributions from renowned global experts within both academia and industry enable the reader to design printed antennas and associated technologies, and offer valuable insights into important breakthroughs in these areas. Divided into 3 sections covering fundamental wideband printed radiating elements for wireless systems, small printed antennas for wireless systems, and advanced concepts and applications in wireless systems. Provides experimental data and applies theoretical models to present design performance trends and to give the reader an in-depth coverage of the area. Presents summaries of different approaches used in solving wireless systems such as WPAN (wireless personal area network) and MIMO (multi-input/ multi-output), offering the reader an overall perspective of the pros and cons of each. Focuses on practical design, examples and ‘real world’ solutions.
