A Doppler radar is defined by as 'a radar which uses the Doppler effect to determine the radial component of relative radar target velocity or to select targets having particular radial velocities.' A pulse-Doppler (or pulsed-Doppler) (PD) radar is defined as 'a Doppler radar that uses pulsed transmissions.' PD radar is used extensively for detecting and characterizing moving targets.
