Abstract

Shadow-feature-enhanced radar detection algorithms potentially allow the probability of target detection to be substantially increased when a target casts a radar shadow across a region of clutter beyond it. However, when the length of the radar shadow is not correctly known, much of the potential performance gain may be lost. We demonstrate a method for estimating the length of the radar shadow using a simple fuzzy system. We apply the shadow length estimation to the shadow-feature-enhanced ML-CFAR detector, showing that its performance can be greatly improved when the shadow length is not known a priori.
