Paper Abstract

A particular method of detecting unresolved targets using simulated generic monopulse radar data is examined in detail. The system is assumed to be incorrectly calibrated i.e. the decision boundary is calculated based on erroneous values governing the hypothesis that only a single target is present in the range cell. The system performance is analyzed under varying values for target ranges, angles between the beam pointing direction and the actual off-boresight angle of the targets, waveform power and number of pulses. Design strategies are advanced to maintain good detection probabilities under conditions of miscalibrated decision boundaries.
