Abstract : The results of a DMTI (Digital Moving Target Indicator) measurements program are reported. In this program the performance of a variety of DMTI processors was measured and compared with theoretical performance predictions. Measurements were made of the MTI improvement factor and the subclutter visibility for the case of radar set operation in a severe ground clutter environment with IF limiting of the clutter signals. Some MTI improvement factor measurements were also made for the linear system case. The effect of MTI processing on target detectability for the case of a target-in-the-clear was also measured. Some MTI performance data for the case of rain clutter was also obtained. (Modified author abstract)
