Paper Abstract

The TOPS pattern recognition program produced a successful demonstration of optical correlation applied to automatic target recognition (ATR) using visible (video) images. The TOPS correlator hardware will soon be tested performing ATR using IR images. In both cases, effective algorithms must be defined and implemented in three functional areas: (1) distortion-tolerant correlation filter design, (2) input image preprocessing, and (3) filter management strategy. The algorithms implemented for TOPS are reviewed and the modifications required for IR imagery are discussed.
