This communication proposes an E-pulse-based scheme for radar target discrimination that provides asymptotically correct results for any level of additive white noise contaminating the radar signal. After multiple sampling of the signal dispersed by the target, it is analytically shown that the cross correlation between the output signals of the E-pulse designed for the standard target, corresponding to two different sampling periods, is asymptotically null, regardless of the amount of
