Figure 10 shows SINR loss versus target Doppler frequency in the case of different target phase difference for PST-JDP method, [eta] = -60[degrees], [eta] = 0[degrees], [eta] = 30[degrees], and SINR loss versus target Doppler frequency for STAP method.
Figure 13 shows SINR loss varies with the target Doppler frequency in the case of different target phase difference for PST-JDP and STAP methods, when [eta] = -30[degrees], [eta] = 0[degrees], and [eta] = 30[degrees], with completely polarized clutter.
The target phase is a representation of the required phase of the VCO if there were no phase jitter present.
However, such a credit would likely result primarily in creative accounting, and policymakers could never be sure how much the target phase of R&D was actually being augmented.
