3  Digital Interperiod Signal Processing Algorithms

3.1 Digital Moving-Target Indication Algorithms

The main fundamental theoretical principles of moving-target indication radar are delivered well in Ref. [1]. The performance of the moving-target indication radar can be greatly improved due primarily to four advantages:

  • Increased stability of radar subsystems such as transmitters, oscillators, and receivers

  • Increased dynamic range of receivers and analog-to-digital converters

  • Faster and more powerful digital signal processing

  • Better awareness of the limitations, and therefore requisite solutions, of the adapting moving-target indication radar systems to the environment

These four advantages can make it practical to use sophisticated techniques ...
