Paper Abstract

Critical factors for MTI performance are determined using a Ground Truth Database containing diverse imagery from a range of UAVs operating in-theatre. The Minimum Target Size is measured and identified as the most critical characteristic of the MTI performance envelope. Other factors for MTI performance are discussed. Receiver Operating Characteristic curves are presented to compare MTI performance w.r.t. false alerts. This methodology provides an objective measurement of the performance envelope of MTI systems.
