A detection of static or slowly moving targets in the inhomogeneous clutter of polarimetric radar is researched and a new detector without exploiting the training set is developed, which has a good performance against the inhomogeneous clutter. The decision rule ensures the constant false alarm rate (CFAR) with respect to the disturbance covariance matrix. Numerical results show the robustness of the proposed method against the inhomogeneous clutter.
