We study the constant false alarm rate matched subspace detector (CFAR MSD) of a signal observed under additive noise following a complex elliptically symmetric (CES) distribution which include the class of compound-Gaussian (CG) distributions as special cases. We prove that the detector is distribution-free under the null (signal free) hypothesis and derive simple expressions for the probability of detection assuming CG-distributed clutter. The derived theoretical results are then illustrated… CONTINUE READING
