Abstract This paper address ground-moving target indicator (GMTI) radar operation in the presence of strong multipath spread-Doppler clutter (SDC). Spacetime adaptive processing (STAP) for single-input-single-output (SIMO) radar is designed to mitigate direct-path SDC which leaks into the sidelobes of a moving radar platform. However, multipath SDC often returns via the receiver mainlobe and cannot be suppressed in a SIMO radar without also canceling the target. In this paper, we study multipath SDC mitigation using multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) GMTI radar. Clutter loci and adaptive array patterns for MIMO GMTI are presented in multipath SDC. By achieving range-dependent nulling on transmit, the effectiveness of MIMO GMTI radar at suppressing multipath SDC is shown.
