1 July 1991 Optical gray-scale morphology for target detection
Author Affiliations +
The use of the optical hit-or-miss (HOM) morphological operation for target detection in automatic target detection (ATR) imagery is considered. Formal gray-scale morphology can be implemented with a number of binary morphological operations. Each binary morphological operation can be implemented on a binary optical correlator at very high speeds with very large structuring elements (SEs). A modified HOM algorithm is advanced and demonstrated on ATR gray-scale imagery for target detection. The algorithm is very attractive for implementation on a binary optical correlator.
