Paper Abstract

Tanner Research, Inc. has developed an arbitrary-scale wavelet constant false alarm rate detector (CFAR) for automatic target recognition (ATR). The proposed effort will be the first exploration of the connection between a traditional CFAR detector and a wavelet transient detector. Traditional CFAR detectors use a fixed, pre-selected kernel scale. Our detector will instead automatically select the scale most beneficial scale for image analysis. Our optimal-scale wavelet CFAR reduces the need for computationally expensive classifiers; thus, it improves image analysis efficiency.
