Abstract : This work derived the mathematics required in the Radar Simulation Concept Evaluation Model (RSCEM) for closed-form answers for the probability of detection and false alarm for Swerling class targets in clutter and noise and targets in compound-K clutter plus noise. In all cases, the results are applicable to the N-pulse coherent detection problem. For the case of a target in spikey clutter plus the noise, the advantage of multiple pulse integration is significant.
