Paper Abstract

This paper describes the evolutionary development of adaptive signal processing algorithms which utilize spatial and spectral information provided by a passive infrared sensor to enhance the detectability of targets in clutter. Key parameters affecting the performance of multi-spectral detection processors are identified and discussed. Adaptive filtering algorithms are presented which can achieve near-optimum detection performance with no prior knowledge of the target and background spectral properties.
