Abstract : A pulse-compression, MTI, doppler-radar system for determining target velocity information from a single target-return pulse is improved by the addition of a pulse-compression filter consisting of at least two pulse compressors and by the addition of a phase-comparison processor. The pulse compressors simultaneously pulse- compress separate portions of the single target-return pulse. The phase-comparison processor then determines the phase difference between the compressed pulses to obtain the target velocity information.
