Paper Abstract

AN initial automated band selection algorithm suitable for real-time application with tunable multispectral cameras is presented for multispectral target detection. The method and algorithm were developed from analyses of several background and target signatures collected from a field test using the prototype Tunable Filter Multispectral Camera (TFMC). Target and background data from TFMC imagery were analyzed to determine the detection performance of 32,768 unique 3-band channel combinations in the visible through and near IR spectral regions. This tuning knowledge base was analyzed to develop rules for an initial dynamic tuning algorithm. The performance data was sorted by conventional means to determine the best 3-band combinations. Methods were then developed to determine performance enhancing band sets for particular backgrounds and a variety of targets. This knowledge is then used in an algorithm to affect a real-time 3-band tuning capability. Additional band sets for real-time background categorization are chosen by both the ability to spectrally detect of one background from another. This work will illustrate an example of the performance results form the analysis for three targets on various backgrounds.
