Abstract : The randomly fluctuating radar echo from an aircraft can be reasonably well described by a family of probability distribution functions - each curve indicating the average amplitudes of echo samples of a particular length. A sufficient number of curves would provide autocorrelation and spectral information (as well as amplitude distribution); not directly but in a form which is often useful in detection studies.
