“Practical ESM Analysis” – A Book Review
17 March 2022
In early March 2022, the proprietor of EW Analytics LLC traveled to London, UK and met with Dr. Sue Robertson, the author of the book “Practical ESM Analysis” (published by Artech House (Boston, London). In this book, Dr. Robertson describes all aspects of Electronic Support Measures (ESM) systems including the collection of radar signals of interest, deinterleaving, signal geolocation, track correlation and signal identification.
Dr. Robertson has extensive knowledge of, and experience with, ESM systems and she shares her ESM expertise in this book through easy-to-understand text and illustrations and through the inclusion of numerous mathematical formulas and example data sets (which further help the reader understand the functions being described).
The result is a book that can serve as an easily accessible technical reference source for ESM engineers and analysts as well as a great introduction for people who need/want to “get up to speed” on ESM. And perhaps equally of note, “Practical ESM Analysis” can also serve as a source of inspiration for research and development; as it undoubtedly will at EW Analytics LLC.
