Coherent Processing Interval


Coherent Processing Interval

A Coherent Processing Interval (CPI), in radar systems, indicates a group of multiple pulses, usually with the same PRF and frequency. A CPI will generally consist of one or more coherently integrated pulses, and possibly 1 or more fill pulses. PRF and frequency are sometimes changed between CPIs or groups of CPIs.
