AbstractA neural network technique has been applied to the marine radar small target detection problem. It has been compared to the conventional processing method of scan to scan integration. The results of the analysis indicate that a neural network is capable of providing performance that is at least as good as, and if the scanning window is optimized for the pulse length being used, much better than the conventional processing technique for small targets embedded in sea clutter.
