Abstract

An approach for point target detection in the presence of speckle fluctuations with nonhomogeneous backgrounds is proposed. This approach is based on an automatic selection between the standard constant background model and a quadratic model for the logarithm of the background values. An improvement of the regulation of the false alarm probability in nonhomogeneous backgrounds is demonstrated.
