Marcum has produced a definitive treatment of the statistical problem of target detection by a pulse radar. The text and graphs of Marcum's papers are presented in terms so highly mathematical that his results may not appear as useful as they really are. The purpose of this memo is to describe the problem that Marcum solved and to present graphs of more extensive and more accurate computed data in a form which may prove more useful for most applications. Nothing new is added from the statistical viewpoint. Those interested in the mathematical development are referred to Studies of Target Detection by Pulsed Radar, IRE Transactions Volume IT-6, No. 2, April 1960.
