Forward-looking radars are essential sensors for many fast moving platforms such as fighter aircraft and missiles. Despite its multiple benefits, noise radar has not yet been used for this task because of the low Doppler tolerance of its waveform and the associated need for computational intense Doppler compensation. This Letter presents the very first experimental results of a continuous-emission noise radar whose antennas are oriented along the direction of proper motion of a car operating as a radar platform at a significant speed. To the best of the authors' knowledge, no experiments of this kind have been published to date. Very likely, the results presented here are the first ones showing moving target detection by a noise radar on a fast moving platform.
