due to moving blades imparting doppler shift onto returned signal
Whatever happened to doppler compensated MTI...... Sorry, just a bit of banter.

I'd love to know a bit more but don't have the need to know any more. I am sure the problem is soluble and will involve MTI design and the threshold for signal returns on small radar cross-section relfections. The problem being that designing radars to solve the problem will take time, which the government doesn't have to meet it's EU targets for renewable power (don't even go there) and money, which the RAF doesn't have for what it really needs let alone new surveillance radars.......

This problem has been researched previously with no major problems reported. One has to wonder if it might be more of a T101 problem rather than a wind turbine problem......
