1 July 1992 Feature-based correlation filters for distortion invariance

In an optical correlator, binary phase-only filters (BPOFs) that recognize objects that vary in a nonrepeatable way are essential for recognizing objects from actual sensors. An approach is required that is as descriptive as a BPOF yet robust to object and background variations of an unknown or nonrepeatable type. We developed a BPOF that was more robust than a synthetic discriminant function (SDF) filter. This was done by creating a filter that retained the invariant features of a training set. By simulation, our feature-based filter offered a range of performance by setting a parameter to different values. As the value of the parameter was changed, correlation peaks within the training set became more consistent and broader. In addition, the feature-based filter was potentially useful for recognizing objects outside the training set. Furthermore, the feature-based filter was more easily calculated and trained than an SDF filter.
