point target

A radar target that is small compared with the pulse volume, which is the cross- sectional area of the radar beam multiplied by half the length of the radar pulse.

Typically, a point target is an object such as an aircraft, ship, or building that reflects the radar signal from relatively simple, discrete surfaces.
