Constant false alarm rate (CFAR) detectors are widely used in modern radar system to declare the presence of targets. Due to the serious masking effects under the multiple targets situation and the clutter edge, the detection probability of CFAR detectors decrease sharply and the alarm rates increase significantly. To solve these problems, a robust adaptive amplitude iteration CFAR (AAI-CFAR) algorithm is proposed in this paper and obtains good performance. By combining the 2nd-order statistic, variability index, and the 4th-order statistic, kurtosis, a variable scaling factor is designed in the amplitude iteration to adapt different environment. Plenty of Monte Carlo simulations are applied to evaluate the performance of the proposed method under different clutter scenarios compared with existing CFAR detectors, which illustrate the superiority and robustness of AAI-CFAR.
