This paper deals with the problem of sea clutter suppression for shipborne high frequency surface wave radar (HFSWR) based on the joint domain localized (JDL) adaptive processing algorithm. The performance of the novel method is compared with 2D FFT plus digital beamforming (FFT-DBF) and orthogonal weight in different azimuths. The results based on simulated and real data show that the novel method provides higher detection performance than others.
