Abstract. Specific properties of reflected from underlying surface signals in the radar of airfield review with high spatial resolution have been studied. The first statistical moments of echo-signal distribution were researched. Evaluations of clutter rejection ratio with using moving target indication were obtained. Recommendations on the structure of echo-signal processing algorithms for airfield surveillance radar with high spatial resolution were defined.

Key words: clutter, rejection ratio, airfield surveillance radar, moving target indication, statistical distribution of echo-signal.
