Abstract
Peak detection is an alternative to the commonly used threshold detection scheme in radar systems. The present report is the first part in an investigation of peak detection performance, for Swerling type targets, in an arbitrary noise/clutter background. In this report, peak detection is compared with classic fixed threshold detection in uncorrelated white noise. A methodology is also developed, capable of handling arbitrary stochastic signal and noise/clutter models.
