Abstract:

The Fredholm equation has been solved for the power density that yields a Weibull distribution for all values of parameter alpha. The closed-form analytical solution for the power level density function pdf of the averaged clutter return is found by using an asymptotic expansion. The Fredholm equation is used to generate a Weibull distribution and the results are compared to the actual Weibull distribution and the results are compared to the actual Weibull distribution. There is particularly good agreement in the tail region of the distribution. Keywords Non gaussian detection Radar signal processing.
