Paper Abstract

We shall show how to extract various important information on the motion of a target from a sequence of its image frames obtained from a single staring imaging sensor which is mounted on an aircraft. Specifically, we present an algorithm which estimates following 15 parameters of an enemy aircraft from its image sequence; position, linear velocity, attitude, instantaneous angular velocity and acceleration. The attitude information of the aircraft is obtained through the image matching operation. In simulations, we show that the proposed algorithm is superior to the conventional algorithms which do not use the attitude information.
