Abstract
The Naval Research Laboratory is studying the performance versus design tradeoffs for infrared seekers used for the acquisition of sea surface targets. The wide variation in background level, target contrast, target size, and background clutter require an optimized sensor design and adaptive real time signal processing techniques to detect and acquire the target. This paper describes generic sea surface target infrared signature characteristics, and the signal processing techniques used to acquire these targets.
