In this chapter, cognition about the surrounding environment has been exploited to adapt the system to the interfering environment. Precisely, the robust joint optimization of the transmit signal and receive filter bank in the presence of signal-dependent interference has been considered. The Doppler shift of the moving target has been assumed unknown, and the worst case SINR at the output of the filter bank has been employed as figure of merit. By doing so, the effectiveness of the cognitive architecture has been investigated when the target Doppler frequency is a-priori unknown. In fact, while a rough Doppler knowledge is very reasonable during the detection confirmation or for an already tracked target, it is usually not available during the standard search radar operation and suitable cognitive algorithms are required.
