? This paper presents a new approach to ROR (Range Only Radar), using S-T (Space ?Time) techniques to enhance received radar signals, in particular reducing the effects of clutter and multipath. The basic principle of S-T systems is that a complete knowledge of the propagation channel is required, at least at the receiver end. The parameters of the propagation channel are used in the process of detection and separation of data collected at the various receive antennas. The paper discusses implementation of these methods in a new approach to radar systems, and some practical problems in achieving these ideas.
