In time domain, a radar signal is divided into two segments: one is for a transmitted pulse and the other is for receiving possible returns from radar targets. Also the received signal is relatively weak and consists of background noise except for the reflected signals from radar targets. In this Letter, we present an energy detection based spectrum sensing for a radar signal in the presence of noise power uncertainty exploiting this characteristics.
