Paper Abstract

A sensor array is tomographic if sensor modules share raw information to form a joint target model. Target identification is then implemented on the global model. This paper considers sensor head and sensor array resource budgets for tomographic ground sensors. In this application, mixed local and global analysis schemes are likely to prove optimal. We illustrate potential approaches with images and analysis of 3D visual and infrared targets.
