Paper Abstract

Shape parameters based on circularity, Fourier descriptors, and invariant moments are studied for the automatic detection of weapons in millimeter-wave data. The data is collected by a 30-frames-per-second millimeter-wave (MMW) imager manufactured by Trex Enterprises for the detection of weapons concealed underneath a person's clothing. Results are illustrated through processing real MMW data.
