This study proposes an improved Multi-Dimensional Hough Transform technique for the detection of low SNR targets (dim targets) in radar data. The proposed Track-Before-Detect technique improves the Multi-Dimensional Hough Transform by limiting the target's maximum velocity and incorporating the SNR values of the targets in the algorithm. In addition, the performance is enhanced by confirming the Hough Transform results with a score-based confirmation algorithm.
