Paper Abstract

A modified form of a composite or multiplexed matched filter has been computer simulated and tested. The modification consists of using only the phase function and setting the amplitude function equal to unity - a so-called phase-only filter (POF). The original filter was D. Casasent's synthetic discriminant function (SDF) filter. The filter and test images were made from actual IR imagery. The results are compared in terms of efficiency, correlation peak height and width, and signal/noise ratio. A binary phase version of the SDF/POF was also tested. Its performance is between the SDF and the SDF/POF.
