An L-band multi-channel sea clutter trial was conducted using a DSTO-built 16-channel receiving array called XPAR in May 2008 at Kangaroo Island, South Australia. This report presents a number of calibration techniques and analyses various properties of sea clutter including backscatter coefficient, spatial and temporal correlations, distributions and Doppler spectra. Observed phenomena are explained.
