Paper Abstract

The Naval Research Laboratory's airborne WAR HORSE sensor incorporates a hyperspectral line-scan sensor, a high- resolution video line-scanner, and a CMIGITS INS/GPS unit. Targets are detected in real time from the hyperspectral data, and images of the detected targets are chipped from the high-resolution video data for presentation to an operator. The INS/GPS data are used to geo-spatially register (georegister) both the hyperspectral data and the video chips. In this paper we show detection results for processing the hyperspectral data both before and after geo- spatial registration when assumed target size is incorporated into the detection algorithms. Then we illustrate the utility of presenting target image chips which are geo-spatially registered and fused with the hyperspectral data.
