We model the effects of phase noise on clutter cancellation and study the overall impact it has on the radar estimation rate. Cooperative bounds involving radar cancellation for additional communications access are impacted by complicating the overall model. We assume the clutter is static with small intrinsic clutter motion (ICM). Treating the clutter cancellation residual due to intrinsic clutter motion and phase noise as an additional noise source, the radar estimation rate is negatively impacted. This clutter cancellation residual further degrades the communications channel, affecting the communications data rate as well. We also study the relationship between the clutter cancellation residual and the range of the scatterer.
