Phase distortion gives rise to variations in the radar ambiguity function, which in many cases, degrades the resolution capability of the system. This paper briefly describes the characteristics of the common forms of distortion in practical systems and deals with the analytical and experimental results of phase measurements using a correlation type phase error detector. The relationship of this device to active correlators and ambiguity function plotters will be described. A discussion of real-time correction of phase distortion with experimental results is also included.
