4 May 2006 Hyperspectral signature modeling for terrain backgrounds
Author Affiliations +
In this paper we present the results of our efforts to develop a digital hyperspectral signature model for terrain features. The infrared signature model development was conducted in conjunction with a parallel spectral phenomenology research program devoted to understanding and exploiting spectral data for landmine detection. That effort identified a need for a dynamic hyperspectral signature model to support target detection algorithm development. One requirement of that model was the need for a model of spectral infrared signatures of various terrain features (e.g., soils) that accounts for the impact of various dynamical environmental factors and processes. A discussion of the terrain modeling approach, the underlying analytical basis, and results from the model computations will be presented.
