This chapter addresses the selection of the numbers M and N and considers the ramifications of using schedules that depart from the norm. Longer schedules, N > 8, have been perceived as advantageous in heavy clutter situations but also cause complications and compromises in other aspects of the radar performance. Recent work has examined the performance of shorter schedules (M < 3, N < 8), and these have been found to have several advantages over longer schedules. The question of how best to use the limited beam dwell time arises and is also examined here.
