Paper Abstract

Gaussian receivers perform poorly in detecting small targets in non-Gaussian clutter, but significant improvement is available by using an appropriate non-Gaussian receiver. Selection of the proper receiver requires an adequate characterization of the unknown probability density function (PDF) of the clutter. In applications where the clutter environment changes and a limited number of homogeneous samples are available to approximate the PDF, an efficient algorithm is essential. The Oeztuerk PDF approximation algorithm satisfies this requirement, needing on the order of 100 samples from the PDF to be approximated.
