Paper Abstract

In optical test of modern shooting range, the 2D spatial imaging technology is usually used for the identification and tracking of ballistic targets. However, limited by its own mechanism of the conventional imaging system (visible imaging system is easily affected by the meteorological environment, and the infrared imaging system has low resolution), the resulted image often suffered from serious reduction in quality with overshadowed target which cannot be identified. In this paper, aiming at the problem which is susceptible to complex background, shading, blaze and other factors in optical imaging, a characterization and detection method of spectral-polarization information for ballistic target recognition is proposed by employing the consistency of space radiation, spectrum and polarization characteristics of targets. The method combines the three steps of target detection in space, enhancement in polarization vector domain and recognition in spectrum domain to achieve accurate detection, identification and stable tracking of targets in test range.
