it was amazing

No other introduction needed

Stimson’s second edition is a slight improvement over his first. “Slight” because improving near perfection remains a difficult task. Nowhere else is such clarity apparent in the complex field of radars. Thanks to Stimson this subject could be understood by my grandmother. If only Stimson would carry edition three to the next echelon, extending depth and detail to levels required to actually build and make a working, modern radar. For example, applying his talent to the intricacies of adaptive processing; a completion of SAR computational demands and processes (vs. stopping at the digital filter FFT); nuances of ever more important phase noise, test, measurement and producibility of radar systems that shouldn’t cost a million dollars per copy (but a fraction of this with proper processes and synergistic integration vs. the “Mister Potato Head” approach of slapping together the latest-greatest-of-every-subsystem-technology still practiced by engineers in just about everything). Unfortunately this may be our last version from Stimson as he’s no longer a young man and such efforts are monumental. Even so, he’s made himself a national asset creating this magnificent edition, probably lasting longer than any of us in the field today.
