Paper Abstract

For Sonar Automatic Target Recognition problems, the number of mine-like objects is relatively small compared to the number non-mine-like objects available. This creates a heavy bias towards non-mine-like objects and increases the processing resources needed for classifier training. In order to reduce resource needs and the bias towards non-mine-like objects, we investigate selection methods for reducing the non-mine-like target samples while still maintaining as much of the original training information as possible. Specifically, we investigate methods for reducing sample size and bias while maintaining good classifier performance. Several methods are considered during this investigation that cover a wide range of techniques, including clustering and evolutionary algorithms. Each method is evaluated based on the classifier performance when trained on the chosen data samples and the execution time to select the new training set. Results on each method tested are presented using sonar data collected using a sidescan sonar system.
