This paper investigates clutter rejection techniques in an OFDM symbol-based radar receiver. Two rejection filters that assume known the clutter covariance matrix are proposed. These aim at mitigating not only the clutter main peak but also its noise-like pedestal that leads to target masking issues. Performance is assessed with synthetic data on filters outputs and in terms of signal-to-clutter-plus-noise-ratio. Results show that the proposed methods succeed, to some extent, in uncovering exo-clutter targets. Rejecting clutter within the symbol-based architecture (instead of prior to) is advantageous for slowly-moving targets.
