Paper Abstract

A model-based system employing a computationally intelligent search strategy has been developed for classifying military vehicles in SAR imagery. The system combines pose detection, Evolutionary Programming (EP) methods, and Geometric Hashing (GH). The design is based on an information filtering process that progressively narrows the scope of the problem space while maximizing for success. While the current system has been trained to identify 12 military vehicles, the architecture is extensible to additional vehicle types.
