The newest airborne and spaceborne imaging sensors, unlike their predecessors, generate data at tens to hundreds of wavelengths simultaneously. The advent of these imaging spectrometers greatly increases the detail of the information available to the analyst, but the concomitant disadvantages of vastly increased data volume and complexity have stimulated the search for more efficient and accurate hyperspectral data exploitation techniques. This paper describes two neural network models used in conjunction to analyze hyper-spectral image data. The first neural network is based on an unsupervised backward error propagation model. This network generates without supervision low dimensional discriminant feature vectors from the original high dimensional signals. These features are analyzed by the second neural network, which is a layered feed-forward neural network based on statistical principles, namely Parzen window density estimation and Bayes decision rule. This network estimates class-conditional probability density functions using training samples and classifies data points so that the expected risk is minimized. Results of applying these two neural networks to 210-band AVIRIS data are presented.
