In recent years, considerable attention has been paid to adaptive clutter suppression for airborne early warning (AEW) radars. A necessary condition for efficient clutter suppression is that the number of adaptive degrees of freedom (DOF) is no less than that of clutter DOF. This paper analyzes the DOF of clutter for phased array AEW radars. The new results obtained here are helpful to design and adaptive system for clutter suppression.
