Paper Abstract

In this work we present an application of matched subspace detectors to the problem of target detection and identification using ground penetrating radar data. In particular we apply sets of matched subspace detector filter banks to data containing both anti-personnel and anti-tank targets as well as metallic and non-metallic clutter objects. Current results indicate the potential for robust target detection and identification but further improvements via subspace modeling and signal extraction/enhancement may also improve performance.
