These radar systems maintain Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) by utilizing low power emis-sions, coded waveforms, wideband operation, narrow beamwidths and evasive scan patterns without compromising accuracy and resolution.

Recently, non-coherent radar detection probability for gamma fluctuating targets in correlated K distributed clutter was calculated in [8].

Nevertheless, the target echoes are also independent of. Radar detection in clutter. the NCG and NCGG clutter models for low grazing angles. They are motivated by physical arguments, the latter of which can accommodate the well-known phenomenon of. CurryR˙book Radar Clutter 81 • Sea state.

σ0 increases with sea state. • Polarization. For smooth terrain and sea surface and low grazing angles, σ0 is greater for vertical polarization than for horizontal polarization. For rough terrain and at high grazing angles, theFile Size: KB. Low-grazing angle targets are di–cult to detect, which is one of the great threats propelling radar development.

Otherwise, detecting low-altitude targets is of great signiflcance to counter low-altitude air defence penetration. However, up to now, this problem has not been efiectively resolved.

Multipath efiect plays an important. Multipath effect is the main factor of deteriorating target detection performance in low grazing angle scenario, which results from reflections on the ground/sea surface.

Amplitudes of the received signals fluctuate acutely due to the random phase variations of reflected signals along different paths; thereby the performances of target detection and tracking are heavily : Yang Xia, Zhiyong Song, Zaiqi Lu, Hao Wu, Qiang Fu.

Fig. 12 is a plot of the mean value of σ° for sea clutter as a function of the grazing angle. It applies for a medium sea (10–20 knot winds). At the lower grazing angles, sea clutter increases slowly with increasing winds above 15 to 20 knots (a few tenths of a decibel per knot). probability of detection (PD), while maintaining the probability of false alarm (PFA) lower than or equal to a given value [1].

The problem of detecting radar echoes in additive, white, Gaussian noise has been studied widely, but less attention has been paid to the problem of detecting radar targets in clutter. In relation with the application. Abstract. Knowledge of radar sea-clutter phenomenology allows accurate models to be developed for assessing target detection performance.

The majority of work in this area has been at low-grazing angles from clifftops or wave tanks and does not consider scattering in the high grazing angle region beyond 10 improve our understanding at high grazing angles 15 0 to 45 0, the DSTO's Ingara. 7 7/ Normalized RCS σ0 R Radar pulse Elevation R Azimuth h ψ Clutter patch antenna footprint φgr ρ θel θaz R θaz ρsec φgr The normalized clutter reflectivity, σ0, is defined as the total RCS, σ, of the scatterers in the illuminated patch, normalized by the area, A c, of the patch and it is measured in units of dBm 2/m 2.

David Jenn Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering Dyer Road, Room Monterey, CA () [email protected], [email protected]   This radar has Look-down/shoot-down capability, meaning it can detect, track and guide a weapon to an air target moving below the horizon as seen by the radar.

This is dependent on the pulse-doppler capability to distinguish between moving and non-moving targets while ignoring ground clutter and. Clutter is a term used for unwanted echoes in electronic systems, particularly in reference to radars.

Such echoes are typically returned from ground, sea, rain, animals/insects, chaff and atmospheric turbulences, and can cause serious performance issues with radar systems. 1 Backscatter coefficient. 2 Clutter-limited or noise-limited radar. The primary factor for this situation and operational condition is driven by the fact that the mean sea clutter return decreases dramatically at low grazing angles (e.g.

degrees grazing) and target radar returns are easily affected by the large clutter signature return. Operating at higher altitudes (i.e. lower grazing angles. low grazing angle clutter has been reported by various researchers over many years []. In [3,4], a model was developed to capture this behaviour so that it could be applied to the modelling and simulation of sea clutter Doppler spectra at low grazing angles.

For surface clutter (sea, land, or ice) the term. 0 is used to represent the normalized mean (or median) reflectivity from an area on the surface of the earth illuminated by a radar.

In some references, the term. is used. The value is constant only for a given angle, carrier frequency, sea state, wind direction polarization, and. The coherent temporal characteristics of medium-to-low grazing angle sea clutter and small boat reflectivity are considered for different radar waveforms under a range of environmental conditions and geometrical configurations.

Accurate empirical modelling of sea clutter enables the inference of the local sea conditions from radar returns, pertinent for port safety and by: In this paper, we consider low-grazing angle target detection in compound-Gaussian clutter for MIMO radar.

e compound-Gaussian clutter represents the heavy-tailed clutter statistics that are distinctive of several scenarios, for example, high-resolution or low-grazing angle radars in the presence of sea or foliage clutter [, ].Totheend,the.

Low probability of intercept (LPI) is that property of an emitter that because of its low power, wide bandwidth, frequency variability, or other design attributes, makes it difficult to be.

Abstract. Because the wideband spiky sea clutter that is frequently observed at low grazing angles and high resolutions plays a critical role in the performance of modern naval radars, it is necessary to analyze two important quantities, the mean spike duration and the mean interval between : Fred Posner, Karl Gerlach.

Radar land clutter constitutes the unwanted radar echoes returned from the earth's surface that compete against and interfere with the desired echoes returned by targets such as aircraft and other moving and stationary targets.

The ability to accurately predict the effects of land clutter in surface radar has been an unsolved problem for many. The second edition of Sea Clutter: Scattering, the K Distribution and Radar Performance gives an authoritative account of our current understanding of radar sea clutter.

In this paper, a novel correlation feature-based detector is proposed to deal with the challenging problem of detecting a range-distributed target embedded in nonstationary sea clutter.

It is well known that sea clutter consists of a speckle component modulated by texture. The nonstationary property of sea clutter is mainly reflected in texture, but its correlation characteristic is mainly Cited by: 4.

By means of a specialized hidden surface algorithm it is possible to discern areas which would not be accessible for a given radar device position, which is especially important for land-based or airborne radar devices working at.

In the measurement of the mean backscatter. 0 from the sea, the number of independent clutter samples determines the accuracy of the estimated mean value of the backscatter. It has been shown in Sec. that the sea return from a given cell is correlated for a period of many milliseconds and that to achieve accuracies of about 1 dB in the estimation of the mean requires measurement times in.
