Abstract. Adaptive processing of signals in the presence of passive interference is an actual task for different pulse radars. Adaptation to passive interference is based on the optimization of the processing algorithm depending on interference parameters, while a priori independent interference parameters are replaced with their estimates according to the adaptive Gaussian approach methodology. The interference parameters estimation is carried out by classified sampling, while the adopted approaches assume that the interference is stationary within the training window. In reality, passive interference is a non-stationary process, as a result of which the estimation of the interference parameters changes, which leads to a change in the detection characteristics. In most pulsed radars, this problem is not solved by the adaptive MTI, that’s why, the process of suppressing inhomogeneous passive interference remains actual. Analysis of correlated Gaussian interference nonuniformity effect on adaptive interperiod processing detection characteristics based on maximum likelihood evaluation of interfernce correlation matrix is carried out in the article. For the models of stepwise and linear change of interference intensity and two varieties of adaptive detectors, the dependences of false alarm probability and the correct detection on training sample size and interference location in the window are determined.

Key words: interference suppression, interperiod processing, detection characteristics, signal detector.
