An intellectual scanning permits to transform the target range differences into the spatial differences of echo signals. This provides the spatial resolution of the signals (in particular, with the equality of angular coordinates of the echo reflectors) and the spatial suppression of clutter. As a consequence, the intellectual scanning is an instrument of a selection of echoes from target with intended range and an instrument of a suppression of intensive close clutter. The obtained result is useful to a case of a continuous or quasi-continuous transmitted signal.
