This work deals with the problem of detecting and estimating multiple radar targets present in the same range-azimuth resolution cell of a surveillance radar system with a mechanically rotating antenna. First, the target parameters are estimated assuming a maximum number of possible targets. To this purpose we use the asymptotic maximum likelihood (AML) RELAX estimator derived in the first part (for pt. 1 see ibid., p. 529-532 (2003)). Subsequently, these estimates are used in a sequential hypotheses test (SHT) procedure. The statistic of the test at each step of the SHT procedure is derived using an asymptotic expression of the generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT) statistic. An upper bound of the false alarm probability is derived in closed form, whereas detection performance of the proposed SHT detector is investigated through Monte Carlo simulation.
