pulse-pair processing

An efficient computational algorithm for digital radar data processing that provides estimates of the mean Doppler velocity and the Doppler spread.

Based on the properties of the autocorrelation function of the radar signal in successive pulses, this procedure is usually much faster than the fast Fourier transform algorithm, but it does not yield the complete Doppler spectrum.
