Abstract : A pulse-compression MTI doppler radar system includes an antenna, a transmitter, a coded modulator, a receiver and a display. The coded modulator is connected to the transmitter and has at least two waveform generators for coding pulses having low cross-correlation. A pulse-compression filter having at least two pulse compressors for providing pulse compressed signals is connected to the receiver. Each pulse compressor is matched autocorrelatively to a different one of the waveform generators. An MTI processor has two MTI processing channels which are responsive to the pulse-compressed signals and provide an output to the display. (Author)
