Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes a research effort to explore the use of neural networks in processing hyperspectral imagery for the purpose of target detection and feature selection in an automatic target detection (ATR) scenario. Images containing 32 spectral bands in the 2.0 to 2.5 micrometers infrared range and with co-registered pixels were used to train and test a backpropagation neural network for detection of ground targets. The dimensionality of the original feature set was reduced using two methods, Karhunen-Loeve and Ruck's saliency technique. The results for the two feature selection techniques are compared using classifier performance as a metric. Finally, a neural network chip (ETANN) was used to test the feasibility of hardware implementation of the fusion processing.
