Abstract : This patent is a modification to the ABC range correlators used in medium PRF radars. It extends the functioning of the range correlators to not only derive target unambiguous range while suppressing detections of clutter discretes but also to reduce the occurrence of false target reports (range ghosts) and blanking of true targets that would otherwise occur when the radar is operated in dense target environments. The specific point of novelty in this design is the operation of two sets of correlators, designated ABC and A'B'C', each with a different M of N detction criterion.
