Conference paper
Part of the EAI/Springer Innovations in Communication and Computing book series (EAISICC)


The inhomogeneous phenomena of nonhomogeneity of clutter power, interference target and isolated interference are always coexisting in the real environment of airborne radar. Therefore research on new inhomogeneous detection methods applied to the case of coexisting several inhomogeneous phenomena has become an important subject in the field of research on radar signal detection technology. The new combined space-time autoregressive (STAR) algorithm is proposed for suppressing all three kinds of inhomogeneous phenomena, while the existing STAR algorithms have no capacity, and the proposed algorithm can suppress all three kinds of inhomogeneous phenomena effectively that is indicated in the results of simulation. The simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
