Paper Abstract

A counter-countermeasures (CCM) algorithm in a target tracking system is required for efficient target tracking under countermeasures (CM) such as infrared flares. Most of the CCM algorithms employ some forms of spectral band discrimination to distinguish between a target and CM. We adopt two detection bands based on the spectral distribution characteristics (SDC) of a target and flares and define the energy ratio between the two band signals (MNR) to represent their SDC and to distinguish them. The proposed algorithm computes the MNR of the incident band signals and its histogram, detects the MNR of flare signal from the histogram, and extracts target signal only from the target and flare mixed signal. To estimate the performance of the proposed algorithm, we simulate it under various conditions. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can eliminate the effect of CM well.
