Paper Abstract

The presence of turbulence such as maritime aerosols between the target and the observer degrades the detection and classification performance of electro-optical sensors and detectors. A filtering algorithm that takes into account of the environmental degradation, the background non-overlapping noise, the non-stationarity of the scene, non-target objects and additive system noise is designed and implemented to detect and classify targets under such conditions. The detection performance of this algorithm has been validated using computer simulations and found to be superior to filters that are optimal with respect to noise statistics but do not take into account the effects of environmental conditions. The algorithm is then extended using a set of training images to be distortion-invariant with respect to different target aspects.
