Paper Abstract

Performance in an MPRF mode of an airborne pulse-Doppler radar is limited by the presence of surface clutter. Analysis of the behavior of clutter and noise data collected from an experimental radar system is performed and compared with the results of simulations. The suitability of the Weibull distribution in representing the statistical behavior of real and simulated data, as input to a CFAR thresholding scheme, is assessed.
