14 May 2019 Assessment of residual fixed pattern noise on hyperspectral detection performance
Author Affiliations +
Hyperspectral imaging sensors suffer from pixel-to-pixel response nonuniformity that manifests as fixed pattern noise (FPN) in collected data. FPN is typically removed by application of flat-field calibration procedures and nonuniformity correction algorithms. Despite application of these techniques, some amount of residual fixed pattern noise (RFPN) may persist in the data, negatively impacting target detection performance. In this paper we examine the conditions under which RFPN can impact detection performance using data collected in the SWIR across a range of target materials. We examine the application of scene-based nonuniformity correction (SBNUC) algorithms and assess their ability to remove RFPN. Moreover, we examine the effect of RFPN after application of these techniques to assess detection performance on a number of target materials that range in inherent separability from the background.
