Abstract : The concept of a new moving target indicator (MTI) based on the range-doppler coupling properties of chirp, step-chirp, and certain polyphase codes is discussed. The principal feature of the range-doppler coupled MTI is that target blind speeds are eliminated. The polyphase codes must by symmetric for proper operation in a range-doppler coupled MTI. The performance of this MTI is evaluated, and its limitations are identified. (Author)
