Abstract : A coherent radar system for using the effects of doppler shift on the distributed spectrum of a pulse modulated carrier to produce a harmonic relationship between doppler side bands at the frequency of the transmitted pulse repetition frequency. Correlation between adjacent side bands are used to generate a second order doppler signal which has a wavelength equal to the pulse repetition frequency instead of the carrier frequency. (Author)
