Abstract
The detection of small floating targets in an ocean environment is discussed in this paper. Because of the time-varying nature of the growler's radar returns, classical detection schemes do not work well. It is shown that these problems can be overcome if the detection is performed in the joint time-frequency plane. The effectiveness of the detection scheme is demonstrated by looking at two specific aspects of the problem: (1) detection of the target when the radar is scanning a certain sector, and (2) when the radar is dwelling in a certain azimuthal direction for a longer period of time.
