The Pareto distribution has been proposed recently as a model for intensity clutter measurements, for maritime high resolution radar returns. Using the theory of spherically invariant random processes, the Neyman-Pearson optimal detector is derived. The generalised likelihood ratio test yields a simple suboptimal approximation, and its performance is gauged against the whitening matched filter.
