Paper Abstract

The recently developed technology of spectrally-adaptive light filtering has been applied to create a spectrally-matched filter directly in the optical channel, to select a target with a known spectral signature over an ambient background. The approach to ATR described eliminates intensive computer post-processing of multispectral images, making real-time target detection with enhanced signal-to-clutter ratio possible.
