Abstract : Analysis and Monte Carlo simulations reveal that a noncoherent MTI using an envelope detector differs from one using a square law detector. The square law detector is usually considered because of ease of analysis, and it is commonly stated or implied that the results are the same because of the similar spectral characteristics of the detectors. A comparison is made between the two noncoherent MTI's and the coherent MTI in terms of clutter attenuation and MTI improvement factors. (Author)
