A study which indicates that the double-threshold radar receiver is effective in suppressing false alarms produced by certain types of interfering electronic signals, with a very small sacrifice in target detection capability. Curves of false alarm rate and signal-to-noise ratio required for target detection are calculated for various values of the relevant parameters and for several target fluctuation models.
