Paper Abstract

In this work we present the application of the Kolmogorov- Smirnov binary-domain measure of similarity to grey scale targets. This generalization consist of the generation of a template by thresholding the target. The threshold level is selected according to an optimality criterion with respect to a metric of performance of the detection algorithm. We examine the reduction of the computation time of the algorithm and its noise robustness, and finally we show an example of application.
