Abstract
The report describes the Constant False Alarm Rate, CFAR, procedure applied to the Ocean Features Workstation, OFW, based on the K distributed sea clutter model. A number of scenes from ERS-1 and RADARSAT are examined and the goodness-of-fit of the K distribution model is investigated, using both visual and standard statistical tests. Improved performance in detecting ship targets in comparison with the previous method on the OFW is observed.
