Coherent detection of radar targets in a non-gaussian background
The problem of detecting radar targets against a background of coherent, correlated, non-Gaussian clutter is studied with a two-step procedure. In the first step, the structure of the amplitude andExpand

Structures for radar detection in compound Gaussian clutter
The problem of coherent radar target detection in a background of non-Gaussian clutter modeled by a compound Gaussian distribution is studied here. We show how the likelihood ratio may be recast intoExpand

Coherent Radar Target Detection in Heavy-Tailed Compound-Gaussian Clutter
TLDR
We show that if the texture of compound-Gaussian clutter is modeled by an inverse-gamma distribution, the optimum detector is the optimum Gaussian matched filter detector compared to a data-dependent threshold that varies linearly with q0(z). Expand

Non-Gaussian Noise Models and Coherent Detection of Radar Targets
Abstract : The problem of detecting radar targets against a background of coherent, correlated non-Gaussian clutter is studied with a two-step procedure. In the first step, the structure of theExpand

New results on coherent radar target detection in heavy-tailed compound-Gaussian clutter
TLDR
We prove that if the texture of compound-Gaussian clutter is modeled by an Inverse-Gamma distribution, the optimum detector is the optimum Gaussian matched filter detector compared to a data-dependent threshold that varies linearly with a quadratic statistic of the data. Expand

Optimum and sub-optimum coherent radar detection in compound Gaussian clutter: a data-dependent threshold interpretation
We propose a possible approach to the problem of optimum and sub-optimum detection of radar targets against a background of coherent, correlated, K-distributed clutter. It is well-known that theExpand

Correction of artifacts in turntable inverse synthetic aperture radar images
TLDR
Inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging on a turntable-tower test range permits convenient generation of high resolution 2- and 3-D images of radar targets under controlled conditions, typically for characterization of the radar cross section of targets or for testing SAR image processing and automatic target recognition algorithms.

Results on the Detection of Signals in Spherically Invariant Random Noise
Abstract : A relationship between well-known estimator-correlator results from detection theory and the detection of signals in spherically invariant random noise is described. This relationshipExpand
