This paper describes a technique developped to understand if a radar receiver filter is tuned or not, manually detuning the receiver central frequency and statistically analyzing the power distributions of Ground Clutter echoes observed in clear sky conditions. Statistical parameters characterizing such distributions are quite sensitive to the radar receiver filter detuning, in particular the 90th percentile. Other indicators, such as the mean and the median can be adopted to distinguish between clutter echoes coming from different type of targets.

Abstract

This paper describes a technique developped to understand if a radar receiver filter is tuned or not, manually detuning the receiver central frequency and statistically analyzing the power distributions of Ground Clutter echoes observed in clear sky conditions. Statistical parameters characterizing such distributions are quite sensitive to the radar receiver filter detuning, in particular the 90th percentile. Other indicators, such as the mean and the median can be adopted to distinguish between clutter echoes coming from different type of targets.
