Abstract
In recent years, millimeter wave (MMW) radar stationary target detection algorithms have employed methods which exploit the geometric nature of targets and clutter in order to eliminate high amplitude clutter returns. Traditional adaptive amplitude thresholding techniques (e.g., constant false alarm rate, CFAR, processing) could not yield the desired high probabilities of detection because thresholds had to be set high enough to eliminate the high amplitude clutter. Man-made targets and high amplitude clutter tend to have different geometrical characteristics. In order to improve detection results while keeping false alarms to a minimum, these differences must be exploited.
