This paper deals with the problem of adaptive multidimensional/multichannel signal detection in homogeneous Gaussian disturbance with unknown covariance matrix and structured (unknown) deterministic interference.

Abstract

This paper deals with the problem of adaptive multidimensional/multichannel signal detection in homogeneous Gaussian disturbance with unknown covariance matrix and structured (unknown) deterministic interference. The aforementioned problem extends the well-known Generalized Multivariate Analysis of Variance (GMANOVA) tackled in the open literature. In Part I of this paper, we have obtained the Maximal Invariant Statistic (MIS) for the problem under consideration, as an enabling tool for the design of suitable detectors which possess the Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) property. Herein, we focus on the development of several theoretically founded detectors for the problem under consideration. First, all the considered detectors are shown to be function of the MIS, thus proving their CFARness property. Second, coincidence or statistical equivalence among some of them in such a general signal model is proved. Third, strong connections to well-known (simpler) scenarios analyzed in adaptive detection literature are established. Finally, simulation results are provided for a comparison of the proposed receivers.
