Paper Abstract

Our unified synthetic discriminant function (SDF) filter synthesis technique using the correlation matrix of the image training set is reviewed. Four different synthetic discriminant functions for intra-class recognition, inter-class discrimination and both intra and inter-class pattern recognition are considered. All techniques proposed are appropriate for object identification, location and classification in the presence of 3-D geometrical distortions in the input object. Initial results obtained on a set of four different classes of infrared ship imagery are presented. Excellent performance (over 90% correct classification) was achieved.
