Doppler radar

A radar that detects and interprets the Doppler effect in terms of the radial velocity of a target.

The signal received by a radar from a moving target differs in frequency from the transmitted frequency by an amount that is proportional to the radial component of the velocity relative to the radar.
See Doppler frequency shift.
