Following the public release of the Spectral and Polarimetric Imagery Collection Experiment (SPICE) dataset, a persistent imaging experiment dataset collected by the Army Research Laboratory (ARL), the data were analyzed and materials in the scene characterized temporally and spatially using radiance data. The noise equivalent spectral radiance provided by the sensor manufacturer was compared with instrument noise calculated from in-scene information, and found to be comparable given differences in laboratory setting and real-life conditions. The processed dataset have regular "inconsistent cubes," specifically for data collected immediately after blackbody measurements, which were automatically executed approximately at each hour mark. Omitting these erroneous data, three target detection algorithms (adaptive coherent/cosine estimator, spectral angle mapper, and spectral matched filter) were tested on the temporal data using two target spectra (noon and midnight). The spectral matched filter produced the best detection rate for both noon and midnight target spectra for a 24-hrs period.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
