Radar clutter models are important for radar target detection when clutter is present. A new method for estimating single clutter type, homogeneous, radar clutter statistics through measurement of a multiple type, heterogeneous clutter was developed in 2015 by researchers at the Air Force Institute of Technology. The estimation method is greatly valued in the clutter research and modeling world for reducing clutter campaign measurement time and cost. This thesis looks at validation steps for the estimation method through the use of simulations and experimental radar clutter measurements.
