Abstract : The patent describes a storage type phase-coherent pulse-doppler radar system wherein the r-f echo pulses are mixed with a coherent frequency (or frequencies) to produce video pulse signals whose amplitude envelope varies with the doppler information and wherein these video pulses are individually stored in a plurality of capacitors. The capacitors are arranged in rectangular matrices with one matrix for each range being investigated. Strobing circuits produce gating pulses to distribute samples of these pulses to their respective storage elements. The stored signals may then be read out at a predetermined rate and analyzed to determine the target's range, range rate, and acceleration.
