Radar scope presentation with and without MTI.
Radar in which the Doppler effect can be employed to differentiate between stationary and moving targets, with the former suppressed and only the latter displayed. In this process, the permanent echoes as well as those from very slow moving objects (if desired) are not displayed on the PPI (plan position indicator), and the radar controller can pay attention to the real aircraft.
