Paper Abstract

In the maritime environment, It is necessary for ship's self protection to search ad track approaching targets. We developed high performance search and tracking system with Infrared sensors. Our system can obtain high performance with several FPGAs and COTS processing boards. Dual band IR sensor (MWIR and LWIR) also gives two types of target detection and tracing abilities. Our system designed to automatically detect and track both air and surface targets such as sea skimming missiles, small ships, and aircrafts at a long range. In this paper, we describe technologies in our search and tracking system architecture. We describe software architecture for signal processing and target detection and tracking algorithms as well.
