Target detection via fused sonar waveforms
Date of Original Version
A common model for sonar clutter is of the transmitted signal convolved with a colored Gaussian process relating to the sea-bottom profile. This environment becomes strongly non-Gaussian if there are multiple realizations: the univariate statistics remain Gaussian, but the joint probability density function (pdf) is not. It turns out that the gains versus a Gaussian-assumption can be substantial. © 2005 IEEE.
