Abstract
In a series of papers Thomopoulos and Okello have designed and evaluate a robust CFAR detector (code-named RobCFAR) for multi-frequency radar data. Validation of the detector/fuser was done using experimental data from the Rome Lab Predetection Fusion Program. In this paper the optimal centralized ad distributed detectors for the same multi- frequency radar data are developed and their performance is compared with that of the RobCFAR detectors. Several problems occur due to the necessity of on-line evaluation of data statistics. These problems are addressed and a comparison is made between the optimal and CFAR data fusion techniques using the experimental data from the Rome Lab Predetection Fusion Program.
