Abstract:

The errors induced by scattering-phase variations on estimates of radial velocity and acceleration from radar signals are discussed. For small changes in target orientation during the measurement, the scattering phase introduces bias in the estimates. Using scattering-phase data for a cylinder, the velocity bias one might observe is indicated.
