Target Detection, Clutter Rejection, Data Normalization, Fuzzy Clustering, Fuzzy Gustafson-Kessel (FGK).
Many commercially available radar systems offer a range of filter options but the problem of clutter rejection for target detection is still present in a number of situations. Rejection of clutter and detection of targets from radar captured data is a challenging task. Raw data captured by radar are not always scaled. A normalization technique has been proposed which transforms the radar captured data into 8 bit. As 8 bit data is easy to analyze and visualize. A modification on Fuzzy c-means has been done by developing Fuzzy Gustafson–Kessel (FGK) algorithm and the result shows robustness of this proposed method.
