Paper Abstract

Recent work in the area of laser radar automatic target recognition of stationary mobile targets has utilized synthetic range imagery to derive correlation filters or templates. This paper examines some of the parameters that need to be considered when generating the synthetic data. In addition to the standard parameters such as range, target aspect angle, and sensor elevation, parameters such as sensor velocity, scan time, and target position in the scene can effect how well the synthetic data matches the real world data. The investigation of these parameters is conducted with synthetic data produced by Infrared Modeling and Analysis simulation package. Some of the synthetic imagery is then compared with measured data.
