Paper Abstract

The discrimination of stationary ground targets from ground clutter with an airborne millimeter-wave radar sensor is discussed. Specifically, discrimination figures of merit, target and clutter statistics, radar resolution cell sizes, the use of polarization, and the probability of false-target density are discussed.
