Abstract : Radar clutter is usually characterized statistically by two parameter lognormal or Weibull models. The utilization of two parameter models has been impeded by a lack of methods for estimating the parameters. An optical monopulse chirp processor is presented that performs real-time adaptive estimates of the lognormal and Weibull parameters. The processor architecture requires only mature optical power or heterodyne spectrum analyzer technology. The optical monopulse chirp processor issued as United States Patent #5,546,089 on August 13, 1996.
