Ultra-Wideband Radar Detection in White Noise
The purpose of this paper is to examine in detail aspects of UWB detection in white Gaussian noise. Specifically, we assume a range-spread target using a point scattering model with a single polarization. We also assume a single pulse has been transmitted as opposed to multiple pulses. Hence we are not considering the problem of compensating for range walk or cancelling clutter with multiple pulses.
