Abstract
In this keynote address, we introduce three-dimensional (3D) passive sensing using photon counting integral imaging. We investigate both linear and nonlinear matched filtering for automatic target recognition (ATR). Significant benefits of the nonlinear matched filtering with 3D integral imaging are found for ATR with a low number of photons. The discrimination capability of our system is quantified in terms of discrimination ratio (DR), Fisher ratio (FR), and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves. Experimental and simulation results are presented.
