    Many radars are capable of detecting objects with modest radar cross section at considerable distance. Such radars also detect very small objects like birds at short ranges from the radar. Various measures can be included in the design of radar to control the false track rate. In radar with sliding window video extractor a numner of measures has to be combined in order to arrive at acceptabely low false track rates. Also the track initiation procedure takes a longer time before new tracks can be declared confirmed. Radars with Moving exploited in a proper way. In such radar, using the Sensitivity Time Control, combined with a sufficiently accurate measurement of the radial speed, is already sufficient to find a robust procedure for low false track rate, combined with a shorter track initiation time.
