Abstract
We consider morphological processing for clutter reduction and object detection. For detection, we compare a binary and gray-scale Hit-Miss Transform and find that the binary operator is preferable. For clutter reduction, we find gray-scale morphology to be preferable. We present a new gray-scale clutter reduction morphological algorithm for low clutter cases and a new algorithm for high clutter cases. In all morphological processing, we find binary structuring elements to be adequate; this is very attractive for our gray-scale morphology decomposition algorithm and its optical implementation.
