5 June 1995 Detection and classification in SAR using MINACE correlation filters
Author Affiliations +
New shift-invariant distortion-invariant SAR filters for detection and classification are described. They employ new modified MINACE filters. Test results are provided for real SAR data with 360 degree aspect views of 2 different objects and for 100 real SAR clutter chips (natural and man-made) that passed the second stage of the Lincoln Laboratory's SAR processor. We obtained PD equals 100% and PFA <EQ 0.82%. The shift-invariance of the filters allow their use as adjuncts for all stages (detection, discrimination, recognition) of a SAR image processor.
