Abstract

A model-based FLIR ATR algorithm is described. It utilizes boundary contrast for target detection and recognition. Boundary contrast is related to the location uncertainty at target boundary points. A polygon model is used for deriving target centroid location uncertainty caused by the boundary point location uncertainty. The significance of the work lies in the sound mathematical models used in deriving the relationship between contrast and location uncertainty for the boundary points and the relationship between boundary point location uncertainty and centroid location uncertainty. Experiment results show significantly improved performance in detection, recognition, and localization. © 2000 SPIE and IS&T.
