Paper Abstract

Land mines usually appear in a wide-field airborne camera as small, low contrast objects. Factors such as the transfer function at relatively high spatial frequencies (as compared with half the pixel frequency) become critically important for detection as well as predicting performance for a notional detection system. An experimental method is described (using a general-purpose filter wheel) for obtaining better resolution and contrast values. MathcadTM documents that automate this process somewhat will also be presented.
