Abstract : The patent relates to a storage type phase-coherent pulse-doppler radar system wherein return signals containing doppler information from a plurality of ranges are stored and then analyzed to determine the velocity and acceleration of targets. The resulting velocity, acceleration, range and time data are stored in a plurality of two-dimensional capacitor matrices with each of the four parameters being stored as a function of each of the other three parameters. Neon lamps associated with each of the storage capacitors and arranged in a rectangular arrays indicate the information stored in the matrices.
