Statistical selection theory is used to detect the multiplicity of the smallest eigenvalues of the covariance matrix, computed using measured multi-channel multi-pulse radar data. A selection procedure is proposed to estimate the multiplicity and value of the smallest eigenvalue(s), which are significantly smaller than other eigenvalues. The probability of a correct selection, P(CS), and the least favorable configuration (LFC) for the procedures are derived.
