Detection and Tracking Statistics

Detectability factor, receiver operating characteristics (ROC), tracker operating characteristics (TOC), range-angle-height (Blake) chart

Minimum SNR threshold for different Swerling target models, minimum detectable signal (MDS), effective probability of detection versus. range, probability of false alarm, probability of true tracks and false tracks in the presence of false alarms.
