Abstract:

Card programmable calculators together with suitable programs can easily provide numerical answers which formerly took large computers and volumes of tabular or plotted outputs for everyday reference. Presented here are derivations and program listings for the HP-65 and HP-67 calculators to provide the user with commonly used radar detection performance data. Both fixed threshold and adaptive threshold CFAR detection with noncoherent integration are covered. Recursive programs for the general chi-squared target fluctuation distribution are treated as well as faster running recursive programs for the Swerling target Cases I - IV. Also included are fast programs for the required detection signal-to-noise ratio based on the simplified algorithms of Barton.
