Paper Abstract

A constant false alarm rate algorithm has been developed for use in multi-band mine detection. While it is often difficult to predict the spectral signatures of targets, the shape of the target may be known. This test exploits geometric target features and spectral differences between the target and the surrounding area. The algorithm is derived from a general statistical model of the data, which allows it to adapt to changing backgrounds and variable signatures.
