Abstract. The research deals with different types of sea clutter effecting the receiver path of amplitude detector and log-CFAR detector of pulse radar. Analysis is made for the performance aerial target detection through sea clutter described by lognormal and Rayleigh law of distribution. A study is conducted for influence of time constant for logarithmic input function displacement of log-CFAR detector on detection performance.

Keywords: sea clutter, CFAR detector, Rayleigh distribution, non-Gaussian clutter, lognormal distribution.
