Abstract: In this paper, several types of conventional and Hough radar detectors with different structures of Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) signal processors are considered. In order to choose the most efficient for randomly arriving impulse interference environment structure a comparative analysis is carried out. The effectiveness of the Hough radar detectors are studied using InterCriteria Analysis (ICA) approach. The average detection thresholds of the conventional detector and the Hough detector with the CFAR processors are estimated. The experimental results are obtained by numerical analysis. The target echo signal fluctuates according to a Swerling II case model. It has a Poisson distribution of the probability for appearance and Rayleigh distribution of the amplitudes. The research work is performed in MATLAB computational environment. The obtained results can be used both in radar and communication receiver networks.
