In this paper, we deal with the problem of adaptive radar detection of point-like targets in presence of noise with unknown spectral properties. As customary, we assume that a set of data sharing the same properties of the noise in the cell under test is available. To cope with a limited number of training data, a Bayesian framework is adopted at the design stage. In order to come up with detectors with good rejection capabilities, the possible presence of a fictitious signal under the null hypothesis is modeled probabilistically, as opposite to the conventional ABORT-like approach. Several detectors are devised for the problem at hand, with different complexities. The performance assessment, conducted by means of Monte Carlo simulations, reveals that a good trade-off between detection power and selectivity can be achieved, even assuming a limited number of training data.
