moving-target indicator

moving-target indicator

[′müv·iŋ ¦tär·gət ′in·də‚kād·ər]
(electronics)
A device that limits the display of radar information primarily to moving targets; signals due to reflections from stationary objects are canceled by a memory circuit. Abbreviated MTI.

The AN/SPS-67(V) provides C-Band radar navigation, station keeping/surface search functions, and a digital moving-target indicator.
The new radar has at least three air-to-air modes (multi-target track, track while scan and dogfight), plus at least six air-to-ground modes (synthetic aperture, ground moving-target indicator, ground moving-target track, spotlight Sar and high-resolution ground mapping), as well as EW functions.
The ASARS-2A radar locates moving and stationary targets with its day and night, all-weather ground moving-target indicator, search and spot modes, and on-board processing mission capabilities.
Features of the radar include a wide-area moving-target indicator (MTI) mode that can detect moving targets in a 6,200- square-mile area in a wedge ranging from 18 to 75 km, a combined SAR/MTI strip mode with 20-foot resolution over a swath 23 miles wide at ranges of 12 to 68 mi, a SAR spot mode with 6-foot resolution covering six square miles, and a sea-surveillance mode.
TIPS is proposing a high-power, multi-mode two-dimensional electronically scanned array that would perform simultaneous synthetic aperture radar and moving-target indicator functions.
