Paper Abstract

This paper presents feasibility studies of a multispectral moving target detection (MTD) system designed to detect and track low-signature moving targets. The system performs multispectral detection based on linear and nonlinear maximum discrimination and representation features (MRDF) for low-signature target detection and correlation tracking of slowly moving targets in clutter. Multispectral detection was tested against multispectral data from an acousto-optic tunable filter in the visible and near IR. The feasibility of correlation target tracking was demonstrated with actual Army MICOM FLIR long wavelength IR images of moving vehicles and tanks in clutter.
