In a recent paper on radar detection in clutter, the authors stated that the signal-to-interference ratiorho_{cf} (u)obtained with the signaluand its optimum filter can have stationary points which are not stationary points ofrho_{mf} (u), the signal-to-interference ratio obtained withuand its matched filter, even when the clutter distribution in range and Doppler is symmetric. This letter strengthens this statement and exhibits an example to support it. The stronger statement is the following: Even for symmetric clutter distributions, the global maximum ofrho_{cf}can exceed the global maximum ofrho_{mf}.
