An extension of techniques for maximum-likelihood detection procedures for radar detection in the presence of undnown parameters (given by Kelley, Reed, and Root). The author applies the analysis to cases where the detection processes still belong to the class of maximum-likehood procedures but where the actual waveform, or noise covariance, or both, may differ from those for which the detection procedure would be maximum-likelihood. The analysis covers detection procedures ranging from fully coherent, through partially coherent, to pulse-to-pulse incoherent cases.
