Abstract
The authors report the statistical analysis of infrared scenes containing a military ground vehicle. The purpose is to attempt to determine the important variables in clutter as well as the robustness of the present definition of clutter through computer simulation. Both variance based and texture based clutter metrics are compared. The authors analyzed both cluttered and non-cluttered scenes.
