Paper Abstract

A new automatic target recognition (ATR) technique called fractal transform is presented. The fractal transform is a combination of fractal image processing and the Hough transform. A measurement of the power spectral density (PSD) of an input scene was performed using a ring-wedge detector to obtain a log (PSP) vs. log (spatial frequency) plot. By analyzing the log-log plot by the Hough transform and a neural network, the ATR operation based on fractal transform is achieved.
