Simulation of Moving Target Indication Radar System Based on VisSim/Comm Application

Keywords: MTI Radar, Pulse Doppler Radars, Signal Processing, n-Delay line canceller (n-DLC), Multiple PRF


Moving target indication (MTI) is mainly designed to detect moving targets and while unmoving targets are filtered out. It focuses on the technique of the modern stationary target indication (STI), by using directly the signal details to determine the reflecting object’s mechanical properties, after that it becomes easier to find moving or non-moving targets. This paper presents the simulation design of the MTI radar system. The main purpose of this design is to help students in understanding the radar system subject and help teachers to explain this subject in a simpler approach. Both students and teachers need to know how the signals inside the MTI radar processor are working and how they are generated and related to each other. This paper introduces a method of simulation of MTI radar signals including, A-scope radar display, transmitted and returned radar pulses with constant and multiple PRF, n-delay line cancellers.
