Paper Abstract

The results of a study in the uses of fractal for the automatic detection of man made objects in infrared (IR) and millimeter wave (MMW) radar imagery are discussed in this paper. The fractal technique that is used is based on the estimation of the fractal dimensions of sequential blocks of an image of a scene and then by slicing the histogram of the computed fractal dimensions. The fractal dimension is computed by a Fourier regression approach. The technique is shown to be effective for the detection of tactical military vehicles in IR, and for the detection of airport attributes in MMW radar imagery.
