15 March 1996 Algorithm fusion for detection with reduced PFA
Author Affiliations +
We consider detection (locating all objects in a scene) independent of object distortions and contrast differences and in the presence of clutter. We employ several different new detection algorithms; to reduce false alarms. We fuse (combine) the outputs from different detection algorithms. We describe a new peak sorting detection scoring algorithm and 3 different fusion algorithms to combine the results from different algorithms: binary, analog, and hierarchial fusion. Quantitative data on a distortion-invariant six object class is presented; the objects have a wide range of object contrasts including obscured objects and the objects are present in severe clutter.
