Paper Abstract

Signature modeling for multispectral applications requires careful consideration of several factors to insure a self-consistent description of the scene as viewed by the various sensors. These factors include geometric descriptions, scenario dynamics, and environmental variables. Recent work at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) addressed several of these issues as part of a research program into object recognition for Air Force applications. One phase of this research produced a flexible and computationally efficient software environment for the generation of multispectral signatures of objects. A related effort on multispectral scene simulation addressed the complementary issue of creating a common background scene for use in dual mode (radar and infrared wavebands) applications. The paper discusses both programs and presents results from the signature and simulation models.
