Title Removal of spurious aircraft detections on weather radar
Abstract A weather radar detects and removes spurious
aircraft from a weather radar display by using one of the methods of
differentiating radar return length, estimating a vertical gradient of
reflectivity, tracking radar returns into regions that are eliminated from the
weather display to provide differentiation, tracking areas of radar returns
that allow detection and removal of the spurious aircraft in relative
geometries, differentiating Doppler velocity, and differentiating spectral
width. The methods may be used individually or in combination to improve

You have UFOs in quotation marks as if this had anything to do with UFOs. May I ask why? I am baffled by this post. It seems to refer to a patent to differentiate between aircraft and weather as far as weather radar goes.

UFOs are aircraft aren't they thus would not show up on radar same as conventional aircraft. Of course assuming they have a radar signature. The bottum line is if the mother ship of all time was out there - it wouldn't show up on weather radar.
