Abstract
In this chapter, experimental data from a Ka-band high-resolution radar system are used to evaluate the performance of several schemes for coherent detection of distributed targets. The importance of this analysis relies on the possibility of exploiting detectors for range-spread targets in modern applications for homeland security. A careful border control is crucial to avoid illegal immigration or drug trade by means of very small boats (such as inflatable or wooden boats). It is thus of great interest to assess the capability of a high-resolution radar system to detect such kind of small targets which, at the resolutions of the data available in this chapter (0.10m, 0.20m, and 1 m), appear range-spread.
