Book Series, Practical Approaches to Electrical Engineering
Author Gregory L. Charvat appeared on CNN on March 17, 2014 to discuss whether Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 might have literally flown below the radar. He appeared again on CNN on March 20, 2014 to explain the basics of radar, and he explored the hope and limitations of the technology involved in the search for Flight 370 on CBS on March 22, 2014.

Low-Visibility Antennas for Communication Systems
This book delivers a comprehensive and cutting-edge study of the design and application of low-visibility antennas, complete with design considerations, computed and measured results, and an extensive exploration of radio frequency and antenna measurements.
Practical Software Defined Radar Remote Sensing
The goal of this book is to show how software defined radio instruments can be used to build working radar systems in practice. The book will attempt to do this by going through many real application examples, describing the hardware needed to perform the experiments, providing concise example code, and also providing real data in the cases where the reader doesn’t have access to actual hardware. The goal of this approach is to teach problem solving tools that are often encountered in radar signal processing problems, with the hope that the reader will learn how to apply them to other similar problems.
