Paper Abstract

A critical problem in the design of signal processing systems for mosaic sensors is the development of algorithms suitable to the detection of dim targets in the face of several significant noise components. These algorithms must provide near optimum performance for given constraints on memory and computing capacity. A general frequency domain theory of the detection of dim targets against an earth background by passive mosaic sensors is given. Simple temporal filtering algorithms are discussed and the results of comparative analysis of these algorithms are presented.
