Paper Abstract

Pattern recognition of ISAR small ship images is considered. These represent a formidable new distortion-invariant pattern recognition problem. Variations to the standard image formation steps were used. The preprocessing used is noted. These include new techniques to produce data with horizontal deckline and proper upward superstructure. New algorithms to determine if an input image is useful are developed; These were necessary for such data. Initial recognition results using new distortion-invariant filters are presented.
