Paper Abstract

Accurate detection of unique objects with minimal false alarm rates is an important requirement for most reconnaissance tasks. This paper presents a methodology for developing an object detection system which examines the spectral, spatial and topographic features in a step-wise manner. The algorithms developed are tested using high resolution thermal infrared images. Multiresolution analysis to improve the performance this approach is also discussed. Results of these experiments show a definite promise for the approach.
