Paper Abstract

This paper analyzes a new method to detect targets. The new method, called `super noncoherent integration' (SNCI), can improve overall detection performance by typically 5 dB to 10 dB relative to conventional noncoherent integration. A simple back-of-the-envelope formula is derived which quantifies the performance improvement of SNCI. Conventional noncoherent integration (CNCI) uses only amplitude measurements to distinguish targets from noise or clutter. In contrast, SNCI uses amplitude data in addition to: monopulse data, quadrature monopulse data, range and Doppler data over a sequence of N transmitted radar waveforms.
