The joint radar-communications (JRC) system in the literature [7-9] showed excellent constant false alarm rate (CFAR) target detection performance when performing radar measurements for uniform motion targets.
The condition of maintaining the uniform motion without vessel rotation effect can be embodied with a condition of moments and forces equality on both sides of the base trolley (mass center).
The researchers have exploited two different areas of physics: Einstein's special relativity - which interprets uniform motion between two objects moving at relative speeds - combined with the power of quantum theory, the new physics of the sub-atomic world that Einstein famously dismissed as 'spooky'.

The First Law of Motion is the law of inertia: "A body remains at rest, or if in motion, it remains in uniform motion with constant speed in a straight line, unless it is acted on by an unbalanced external force.
Alexander Kashlinsky (NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) and his colleagues say they have measured an unexpected, uniform motion across a gigantic bulk of the universe.
