Paper Abstract

Functions that typically perform image compression are used to improve and simplify the accuracy of automated target detection. Since image compression functions are used to perform this target detection, fast (real time speed) target detection hardware already exists. The accuracy improvements are demonstrated to (1) reduce the target misclassification rate (i.e., false alarm rate) and (2) enhance the detection of low contrast or reduced signature targets. This paper specifically addresses pixel by pixel template matching for multi-spectral imagery, but a previous UNISYS paper performed an analogous function for radar and monochrome imagery using spacial template matching.
