Abstract : A signal detection system, preferably for use with a coherent radar system selects certain combination of input signal samples in a block of signal samples to derive a test statistic which is unbiased by Gaussian noise. Products of pairs of sample values are stored in a data sample look-up table. An index look-up table is created by scanning through possible combinations of addresses and excluding those combinations of sample values which would be redundant over other combination and would result in a contribution to biasing by noise.
