Paper Abstract

The requirements for an automatic target screener operating on imagery from a tactical thermal imaging system are derived from the use scenario. A design approach using analog front end processing on the single line video with subsequent digital feature generation and linear discriminant classification is discussed. The design includes an automatic threshold system for scene segmentation and will utilize moment or Fourier descriptors as discriminant features to achieve classification into five ground classes updated ten tirnes per second.
