Abstract:

The normalized periodogram detector or ratio detector can be shown to perform the likelihood ratio test for detecting range-sampled Dopplermodulated sine waves in Gaussian noise of constant but unknown intensity. The distribution function df and probability density function of this detector are derived. From the df the probability of false alarm and the probability of detection are easily found. Author
