Paper Abstract

The analytical and processing developments in the field of Image Understanding over the last 15 years have led to the creation of a set of processing tools for the detection, characterization (feature extraction), and classification of 2 dimensional signals. This set of tools is applicable to 2 dimensional signals other than the traditional "image" type signals. In particular, for passive sonar detection processing several 2 dimensional signal transforms are generated from the 1 dimensional sensor time series data. These transforms are selected in order to concentrate signal energy locally within the 2 dimensional transform. A classic example is the Lofargram which is a grequency versus time transform of the time series data. If the acoutic source is emitting tones (for example from machinery) then the Lofargram will contain line like structures.
