A three stage approach to large target acquisition in spectral images Academic Article uri icon


  • Over the last few years, we have developed an algorithm which detects anomalous targets in hyperspectral or multispectral images. The algorithm takes a data (image) cube with a completely unknown background, segments the cube, assigns the largest clusters as background, and determines which pixels are anomalous to the background. In the work to be presented here, we will add two additional modules. First, since our present mission is to detect military targets in a fairly barren rural background, we use the SAVI (or NDVI) …
