Abstract:

Many formulas involved in the computation of radar detection performance, such as incomplete Toronto function and modified Bessel function, have very bad numerical behaviors. This fact leads to errors of the computed results. We developed and presented in this report the numerical methods which greatly improve the accuracy of the results. Another major work in this report is to investigate the effects of the energy distribution on the radar detection performance. In contrast to ordinary assumption of uniformly distributed energy, we allow the resolution cells to have different energy. Many results are obtained based on the new energy distribution model. And the relationship between uniformly and non-uniformly distributed energy is discussed.
