There are three targets; the Doppler of the true target 1 is 20 kHz, the Doppler of false target 2 and false target 3 is 30 kHz and 40 kHz (generated by shift-frequency jamming), respectively, the wavelength is [lambda] = 01 m, and the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of all the targets is -5dB before pulse compression.
First, considering the kinematic term, assume a Gaussian distribution for the true target and a uniform distribution over the measurement volume, [V.sub.c], for the false target. Then,
It is restricted by many factors, which can cause target lost or false target if the block length is not set appropriately.
The advanced countries are now using "new space-based surveillance and intelligence gathering systems, anti-satellite weapon, anti-radar, infrared decoys, and false target generators" to obtain the required results.
(4) Target recognition module gets rid of the false target by a priori information of ship target.
On the contrary, the clutter or false target appears randomly in the three-dimensional space and it is hit by inconsecutive illuminations, resulting in a false track consisting of much less points compared with the true track.
The former is known as a false target, and the latter can be implemented by a fake core node that spreads service-like traffic to attract attackers.
"To wait any longer would be continuing to give our kids a false target," she said, noting that districts have been telling the department for several years that elementary math targets were too low.
This can reduce the energy reflected from the target to the point where the weapon cannot lock-on, or might even home onto a false target. A traditional 'rule of thumb' is that if the observer can see a target through either day or night optics he can successfully designate it.
The open spaces saved the city from further destruction for 70 small explosive bombs fell on Leckwith Wood and Common, where the incendiaries had marked a false target for the Luftwaffe.
The MSP422 has a built-in false target recognition and rejection feature, and can be programmed to ignore the effects of stirrers, paddles or other intrusions, so avoiding false alarms and improving the reliability and credibility of the reading.
