Maximum Unambiguous Velocity

What is Maximum Unambiguous Velocity?

Maximum Unambiguous Velocity meaning The highest radial velocity that can be measured unambiguously by a pulsed Doppler radar. The maximum unambiguous velocity is related to the radar’s successive pulses of emitted energy. When a target’s velocity exceeds the maximum unambiguous velocity, the velocity will be “folded” to appear as a different velocity.
