Abstract
Cruise missiles over land and sea cluttered background are serious threats to search and track systems. In general, these threats are stealth in both the IR and radio frequency bands. That is, their thermal IR signature and their radar cross section can be quite small. This paper discusses adaptive sequential detection methods which exploit 'track- before-detect' technology for detection glow-SNR targets in IR search and track (IRST) systems. Despite the fact that we focus on an IRST against cruise missiles over land and sea cluttered backgrounds, the results are applicable to other sensors and other kinds of targets.
