matched filter

A type of filter matched to the known or assumed characteristics of a target signal, designed to optimize the detection of that signal in the presence of noise. Typically such filters are implemented in the temporal or spatial frequency domain, using digital techniques (though analog matched filters are found in radar receivers).
