Paper Abstract

We consider rejection and classification tests on the MSTAR (moving and stationary target acquisition and recognition) public database. We follow a benchmark procedure, which involves classification of three object classes and rejection of two confusers. This problem is difficult, since MSTAR images are specular and each target has a full 360° aspect angle range. In addition, a classifier should be able to handle object variants and depression angle differences between the training and test sets. We employ a new support vector representation and discrimination machine (SVRDM) for its excellent rejection-classification capability. A new simple registration method is used. Test results are presented and compared with those of other algorithms. The proposed method was also applied to clutter rejection and produced perfect rejection scores.
