Paper Abstract

Despite much prior work, one of the problems that still persists in using composite correlation filters for Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) is the high false alarm rate due to clutter. In this paper, we propose two methods (one based on clustering and another based on extending the maximum average correlation height or MACH filter) to improve the clutter rejection capability of composite filters. Initial numerical results are presented to illustrate the potential improvements.
