Abstract : In this paper, some results relevant to experimental characterization of Mediterranean sea clutter are presented. The data were collected by using a X-band coastal radar sited on an Italian Navy area in Livomo. The aim of this research activity is the collection of clutter samples in different conditions (weather conditions, carrier frequency, polarization and radar site) for clutter models validation, performance assessment and optimization of the radar processor.
