Paper Abstract

Using Bayesian statistical methods a formulation is setup for fusing multi band data from LWIR sensors. This formulation is illustrated with applications to synthetic data consisting of 100 signatures in the wavelength bands 6 - 10 micrometers , 11 - 16 micrometers and 17 - 21 micrometers . Following the works of Jaynes, and Bretthorst, a Bayesian formulation is given for detrending the time series data for the emissive area, followed by estimations of frequencies and their amplitudes. This formulation is illustrated with analysis of the synthetic data.
