The maritime surveillance performance of the adaptive normalised matched filter (ANMF) detector structure against real multichannel, medium grazing angle, radar sea clutter data processed via space-time adaptive processing (STAP) is assessed and shown to exhibit constant false alarm rate (CFAR) performance characteristics which diverge from predictions over a large segment of the endo-clutter spectrum. The non-CFAR behaviour is linked to the existence of a two-component clutter model composed of contributions from Bragg and fast scattering mechanisms.
