Paper Abstract

This paper focuses on use of a new image filtering technique, Pulsed Coupled Neural Network factoring to enhance both the analysis and visual interpretation of noisy sinusoidal time signals, such as those produced by LLNL's Microwave Impulse Radar motion sensor. Separation of a slower, carrier wave from faster, finer detailed signals and from scattered noise is illustrated. The resulting images clearly illustrate the changes over time of simulated heart motion patterns. Such images can potentially assist a field medic in interpretation of the extent of combat injuries. These images can also be transmitted or stored and retrieved for later analysis.
