Paper Abstract

In this paper, the application of Joint Transform Correlator (JTC) techniques for use in automatic target recognition using actual sensor data is addressed. The problem of interest is the detection and classification of objects in forward looking infrared (FLIR) images. A Joint Transform Correlator architecture using a single magnetooptical spatial light modulator (MOSLM) and a charge coupled device (CCD) camera is designed and tested. A unique technique for binarizing the fringe pattern, commonly called the joint transform power spectrum (JTPS), that enhances the application to actual sensor images is presented. The modification of the architecture to allow for scale and rotation invariant target recognition is also presented.
