Abstract

Foreign Object Debris (FOD) detection is an importance issue to civil aviation safety. In this chapter, the technique of clutter map CFAR plane detection is discussed in detail and applied to FOD detection on airport runway based on millimeter-wave linear frequency modulated continuous wave (LFMCW) radar. The detection performance of the technique is analyzed, and a simulation experiment is conducted. Simulation result shows the effectiveness of the clutter map CFAR plane detection technique in relatively low signal-to-clutter ratio (SCR) situation.
