Abstract : Pulses of short duration are radiated by an impulse radar transmitter within time domain intervals under control of a clock to monitor a moving target from which echo pulses are reflected. The echo pulses received are measured by a quantum detector in terms of photon energy levels to supply signal data processed during periods between said time domain intervals.
