We present a method for the design of mismatched filters minimizing the interference from unwanted targets (point target or clutter) under the constraint of matched filtering loss. The method method seeks to find the optimum filter minimizing the interference and having a desired cross-correlation with a given transmitter waveform. The method is applied to get the minimum integrated side-lobe level filters and to optimize the receivers of the pulse diversity systems.
