Abstract

An adaptive detector for a known deterministic signal of unknown amplitude in Gaussian noise of unknown spectra is described. The detector is based on the Rao test which is asymptotically equivalent to the generalized likelihood ratio. The detector achieves constant false alarm probability in the presence of large changes in input noise bandwidth and variance while providing optimum detection performance. The results are supported by simulation. © 1992 IEEE.
