Abstract : The patent application provides a radar system capable of averaging a large number of independent 'clutter' return samples within a single pulse of about one microsecond. It provides a fast-scanning meteorological radar having a suitable narrow scanning beam and being capable of scanning one hemisphere of sky within about 20 seconds. It further provides a 'clutter' type radar capable of providing the mean reflected power in formation with sufficient accuracy to permit a reflected power estimate with an uncertainty considerably less than 0.6 db.
