Paper Abstract

In this first of a series of two papers, previous work is extended to include analysis of the effect on various target recognition algorithms of error reduction techniques that partially compensate interfacial topography mis-estimation. Additional error sources include (1) accrual of spatial error in the image restoration process due to blur resulting primarily from optical effects within the water column, and (2) uncertainty in sensor platform motion. The impact of such perturbations on the accuracy of interframe coregistration, which is essential for multiple-view analysis, is also discussed. A companion paper describes algorithms that pertain to target feature detection and partial restoration.
