Paper Abstract

The method of matched pursuits is used to analyze two- dimensional digitized SAR images generated by XPATCH in the digital spatial domain. Several algorithms for employing matched pursuits to the problem of detection and recognition of targets in the digital spatial domain are presented. These algorithms are then demonstrated through application to SAR images of four American military aircraft: the F-15, the T-38, the V-218, and the X-29. Several chip dictionaries are proposed and evaluated. A performance comparison between the method of matched pursuits and the M-ary optimum detector is provided. The degradation of performance in the presence of noise and computational complexity issues are addressed.
