Abstract

A new detection algorithm based on constant false alarm rate (CFAR) algorithm, which is applicable to radar image with homogeneous background, is proposed in this paper. This algorithm firstly estimates the parameters of the probability model of background accurately. Then a conventional global CFAR is done using the results of estimation. In estimating the parameters of background, a novel iterative algorithm, which is self-adaptive, is given. The simulation results demonstrate that the performance of the proposed detection algorithm is very close to the theoretical optimum value, and better than CA-CFAR, GO-CFAR and SO-CFAR.
