Paper Abstract

We alert the reader here to a discrepancy between what has recently been referred to as the Generalized Likelihood Ratio (GLR) approach to radar target detection and what has historically been used as the GLR approach to this same problem in detection theory. Despite these identified discrepancies, the recent version is tractable and has desirable properties and consequently exhibits behavior that is very encouraging. After making the necessary clarifications, we summarize the status of the new pseudo-GLR and contrast it to what was available from the older (evidently antiquated) literature on GLR formulation, which, however, did serve as an historical precedent.
