Paper Abstract

The potential of a new class of detection algorithms is demonstrated on an object of practical interest. The continuum fusion (CF) [1] methodology is applied to a linear subspace model. A new algorithm results from first invoking a fusion interpretation of a conventional GLR test and then modifying it with CF methods. Usual performance is enhanced in two ways. First the Gaussian clutter model is replaced by a Laplacian distribution, which is not only more realistic in its tail behavior but, when used in a hypothesis test, also creates decision surfaces more selective than the hyperplanes associated with linear matched filters. Second, a fusion flavor is devised that generalizes the adaptive coherence estimator (ACE) [2, 3] algorithm but has more design flexibility. An IDL/ENVI user interface has been developed and will be described.
