Abstract

The clutter influence on the automatic target classification (ATC) accuracy in forward scattering radar (FSR) is presented. To study the ATC at various signal-to-clutter ratios (SCR), a simulated vegetation clutter is artificially added to the real clutter-free targets recorded signals. It is shown that using conventional clutter-uncompensated ATC system can achieve high target classification accuracy at high SCR only, but the accuracy drops significantly with SCR decreasing. The employment of clutter-compensated ATC system is shown to improve significantly the classification accuracy at low SCR.
