7 December 1981 Building And Bridge Classification By Moment Invariants
Author Affiliations +
A classification algorithm for building and bridge structures, based on the invariant moments, is described. Development of the algorithm was motivated by the concept of a short-range cruise-missile-type weapon, the mission of which is to acquire and hand off high-value fixed targets to a terminal guidance tracker. In every case of applying the algorithm to actual IR images, the target classification score, even for a complex urban scene, has exceeded any competing image segment by 25 percent.
