Abstract
Detailed knowledge of the temporal statistics of ground clutter is essential to determine the detection threshold settings so as to maximize the probability of target detection while maintaining an acceptable probability of false alarm. The performance of existing false alarm control schemes is often limited due to a lack of detailed knowledge of the ground-clutter temporal statistics. In this study, we analyze experimental data to characterize the temporal statistics of low-angle ground clutter in terms of the clutter's linear amplitude distribution. Effects of radar frequency, polarization, waveform resolution, land covers and wind speed on the statistics are examined.
