Two modifications of the conventional radar theory of matched filters and ambiguity functions are discussed. The first modification is to make the theory valid for high-velocity targets and wide-band signals, and the second is to include the effects of acceleration. The ability of a radar to measure target acceleration has previously been discussed in terms of measurement accuracy for isolated targets. This paper is concerned with the form of data processing necessary for the measurement and with the effects of acceleration on the clutter problem.
