Paper Abstract

A hypothesis testing method for target screening is proposed. The method assumes that over a target sized window the target as well clutter probability density distributions are Gaussian. A double window generating algorithm scans the terrain, calculates the target PDF and correlates the PDFs of the target and clutter. Target detections are noted where the correlation between the target and clutter PDFs are small.
