Paper Abstract

Two sets of turntable and test range imagery of an M60A2 tank were collected to include various elevation, azimuth, and range variations. The turntable imagery was used as the reference for generating binary phase-only filters which were evaluated with the test range imagery. Several sensitivity and filter design parameters were determined for single reference and multi-reference 'smart' filters. The distortion sensitivity parameters derived from the initial data collection were used to determine the final turntable and test range data collection requirements. The final data collection will be used to generate and evaluate a complete smart filter set designed to recognize and locate an M60A2 tank.
