Abstract

CFAR detection is an essential filtering component in modern radar systems. Conventionally, this filtering is performed using general purpose CPUs. Modern FPGAs offer what CPUs do not: parallelism. The goal of this project was to implement conventional CFAR algorithms on the FPGA platform for high performance, and further, develop and implement a previously unexplored algorithm involving histogram sorting.
