Paper Abstract

In this paper we further develop the theoretical foundations of the Wave Process and demonstrate several of its capabilities in three areas. This is a continuation of work that has been reported earlier. The equations describing the ideal Wave Process have been used to find parameter values that optimally match the response to a particular target velocity, for two different cost functions. The response of the ideal Wave Process has been determined for targets moving at other than the optimum velocity. Demonstrations show the Wave Process responding to maneuvering targets. Finally, the Wave Process equations have been extended to address targets moving against background. This ability to select the moving target and suppress the background is demonstrated for images derived from weather satellite photos.
