Abstract : The patent describes a coherent digital multifunction processor that is capable of multiple-mode processing and can also perform rapid inter-mode switching. Additionally, while processing data in a given mode, the subject processor is capable of self-synchronization, thereby obviating the requirement for external synchronous devices. The instant processor has a central control which may suitably use a general purpose computer in one embodiment. The primary modes of operation of the subject processor are: a pulse doppler acquisition and/or tracking mode, a moving target indicator mode, and an incoherence mode.
