Paper Abstract

Recent advances in the field of spectral sensing technology have elucidated the benefits of multispectral and hyperspectral sensing the military and civil user community. These advancements, when properly exploited can provide the additional and improved automated terrain analysis, image understanding, object detection, and material characterization capabilities. the U.S. Army has established a Center of Excellence for Spectral Sensing Technology. This Center conducts collaborative research on, and development and demonstration of spectral sensing, processing and exploitation techniques. The Center's collaborative efforts integrate programs across multiple disciplines and form a baseline program consisting of coordinated technology thrusts. Existing efforts span the domains of sensor hardware, data processing architectures, algorithms, and signal processing and exploitation technologies across wide spectral regions. These thrusts in turn enable progress and performance improvement in the automated analysis, understanding, classification, discrimination, and identification of terrestrial objects, and materials. The participants draw upon common scientific processes and disciplines to approach similar problems related to different categories and domains of phenomenology.
