Abstract
This technical note proposes a coherent laboratory radar system for conducting studies on digital MTI subsystems subjected to real clutter environments. Some fundamental design considerations for a coherent pulsed system are presented. In particular, the digital signal processing channel, the system dynamic range, the estimated clutter return levels and the influence of system errors on the clutter cancellation ratio are discussed. Several systems extensions to incorporate such techniques as frequency agility, coded waveform design, electronic antenna scanning and adaptive digital processing are introduced to indicate the growth potential of the proposed coherent laboratory system.
