11 September 2003 Automated threshold selection for a constant false alarm rate
Author Affiliations +
The utility of Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) algorithms is that the selection of a detection threshold may be made independently of image intensity. However, wide application of the algorithms shows that detection values are highly dependent on scene characteristics. A threshold selection algorithm is presented for a CFAR detection algorithm. Fitting the output of the detection algorithm with a model of a portion of the theoretical results allows for background independent threshold selection.
