Thanks to several alert Microwaves101 fans (Steve, Kerry, Matthew, Randall, Joe, Julian to name a few...) we have our own copy of the Navy's Electronic Warfare and Radar Systems Handbook. This is a public domain document originally released in 2013. Click the image to read it and when the handbook is displayed, click the floppy disk in the bottom right area outside of the handbook image to download the pdf.

Below we have listed the table of contents of the Electronic Warfare and Radar Systems Handbook.
