Abstract
In this report, we present an analysis of the performance requirements for a Multichannel Doppler Processing Unit (MDPU) which is part of the Experimental Low-Angle Tracking (ELAT) radar system. This doppler processing unit must perform the following functions: data reduction, signal-to-noise ratio improvement, sea-clutter rejection and correction for systematic errors. Before establishing the doppler processing requirements, we analyse the characteristics of the sea-clutter as a function of the ELAT radar parameters. Then, we present the general guidelines for the design of the MDPU, with emphasis on a new method to compensate for systematic errors. Finally, we consider the effects of block sampling on both target detection and target height estimation.
