Abstract:

The forms and properties were studied of a detector designed to operate in an environment in which little statistical information about either the signal or noise field is or can be available. An adaptive detector based on the theory of nonparametric statistics has been designed for this purpose. The detector uses amplitude samples taken from two distinct receivers, only one of which may contain signals from a target. The detector is shown to maintain constant false alarm rate despite any nonstationarity of the noise. Author
