This study proposes a multi-dimensional Hough transform algorithm that is improved from [1] by detecting weak targets in the high clutter. In the proposed algorithm execution time is reduced by eliminating the measurements considering speed and SNR values before the Hough transform. The skor-based track confirmation algorithm proposed in [1] is improved and tracks that belong to same target are eliminated. The proposed algorithm is tested with real data and results are presented.
