maximum unambiguous range

[′mak·sə·məm ‚ən·am¦big·yə·wəs ′rānj]
(electromagnetism)
The range beyond which the echo from a pulsed radar signal returns after generation of the next pulse, and can thus be mistaken as a short-range echo of the next cycle.

[R.sub.u] is the maximum unambiguous range. Using the central moments in (16), the feature vector F can be represented as
Parameter Value Carrier frequency 340 MHz Average transmitting power 25 W Bandwidth 15 MHz Frequency-sweeping time width 0.04s Frequency-sweeping period 0.043s Transmitting pulse period 78.125 [micro]s Maximum unambiguous range 5.12 km Range resolution 10 m Maximum unambiguous Doppler frequency 11.63 Hz Maximum unambiguous velocity 5.13 m/s
The maximum unambiguous range of a pulse radar is determined by the pulse interval.
