Abstract : Six integrators used in long term radar integration were studied. Generally, we found, even in fairly dense background of targets, that there was significant improvement in target detection due to the long term integration and that the false target generation could be controlled. The mechanism that allowed this result is based on removing a small percentage of the strongest signal in each integrator. This mechanism removed the few true target signals in many of the integrators which could cause ghost detections that were not valid targets. Using this technique, the false detections were easily controlled at only a very small expense in true target detectability.
