Paper Abstract

A series of field measurements of targets and backgrounds was made by an infrared Fourier transform spectrometer as part of the Joint Multispectral Sensor Program (JMSP), a joint program involving the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, and ARPA. These measurements were designed to observe targets in various types of background clutter, investigate the utility of novel algorithms for the detection of resolved and sub-pixel targets, and to aid in the selection of spectral bands for a future airborne multispectral sensor. This paper gives an overview of objectives and goals of the JMSP data collections, the targets viewed, and examples of the observed data.
