Abstract

We deal with performance prediction of the incoherent radar receiver (i.e. squared-law plus integrator) in the presence of independent non-identically distributed (non-id) Weibull target echoes. First of all, we provide the probability density function (pdf) for the sum of independent but non-id Weibull random variables in terms of an infinite sum of Gamma pdfs. Then, we develop an analytic expression for the detection probability as a fast converging series of functions. Finally, we evaluate the impacts on the detection performance of non-id Weibull target parameters. © 2014 IEEE.
