Losses due to moving target indicator (MTI) processing

`[`

computes integration loss, `LI`

,`LV`

] = mtiloss(`PD`

,`PFA`

,`N`

)`LI`

, and velocity response loss,
`LV`

, due to MTI processing with a two-pulse (first-order) canceller
given the probability of detection, `PD`

, probability of false alarm,
`PFA`

, and the number of received pulses available at the MTI input,
`N`

.

The function computes the loss assuming you are using a square-law detector and a nonfluctuating target.

`[`

computes MTI losses using one or more name-value arguments. For example, `LI`

,`LV`

] = mtiloss(___,`Name,Value`

)```
[LI,LV] =
mtiloss(0.64,1e-12,8,'Method','Batch')
```

calculates `LI`

and
`LV`

for MTI with batch processing. Specify the name-value arguments
after any of the input arguments from the previous syntax.
