Advanced Techniques for Radar Signal Processing


This work addresses the problem of target detection for multistatic radars. We propose an algorithm that is able to keep constant the false alarm rate, when the disturbance samples associated with each receiver-transmitter pair are distributed according to a compound Gaussian model. The performance of the proposed detection algorithm are analysed to assess the impact of clutter diversity on detection performance. The results show that clutter statistical diversity has a strong impact on detection performance. The performance of both single-channel and multichannel detection schemes are evaluated by processing real sea clutter data collected by the NetRAD nodes, in order to evaluate which of the two channels, i.e. the bistatic and monostatic channels, is more favourable for target detection. Furthermore, the gain achieved by using a multistatic detection algorithm is also analysed.
