Nonlethal Weapons and Other Applications, D.V. Giri. Harvard University Press. Nonlethal weapons are going to play an increasingly important role in combat and in civil conflict in the coming years. They offer a way of controlling dissent and insurgencies without increasing antagonism, particularly in peacekeeping missions. They prevent the unnecessary loss of life among the non-combatant population of adversaries and they decrease the number of casualties due to friendly fire.

The need for new nonlethal weapons technologies has been well documented by researchers and policy makers. High-powered electromagnetic radiators are aimed at addressing this need.

Beginning with a brief survey of the history of warfare, D. V. Giri systematically examines various nonlethal weapon technologies, emphasizing those based on electromagnetics. His systematic review of high-power electromagnetic radiators is organized by frequency, coverage, and level of sophistication of underlying technologies. He provides many examples of complete systems, going from wall-socket to radiated waves. Giri’s focus on electromagnetics makes this book essential reading for researchers working with high-power microwave and electromagnetic pulse technologies as well as antenna engineers. D. V. Giri is a consulting scientist.

Focuses on advanced technologies for the generation, radiation and detection of ultra-wideband short pulse signals

Reports on developments in supporting mathematical and numerical methods and describes current and potential future applications of the technology

Written by leading researchers and experts in the field of ultra-wideband short pulse electromagnetics Ultra-wideband (UWB), short-pulse (SP) electromagnetics are now being used for an increasingly wide variety of applications, including collision avoidance radar, concealed object detection, and communications. Notable progress in UWB and SP technologies has been achieved by investigations of their theoretical bases and improvements in solid-state manufacturing, computers, and digitizers.
UWB radar systems are also being used for mine clearing, oil pipeline inspections, archeology, geology, and electronic effects testing. Ultra-wideband Short-Pulse Electromagnetics 9presents selected papers of deep technical content and high scientific quality from the UWB-SP9 Conference, which was held from July 21-25, 2008, in Lausanne, Switzerland. The wide-ranging coverage includes contributions on electromagnetic theory, time-domain computational techniques, modeling, antennas, pulsed-power, UWB interactions, radar systems, UWB communications, and broadband systems and components. This book serves as a state-of-the-art reference for scientists and engineers working in these applications areas.
