When we apply the newly developed LPED (local polar edge detection) image processing method to a binary IR-image which contains a special meteorite-like streak produced by the enemy SAM, the image processing speed can be even enhanced further if another novel preprocessing scheme is used. This novel preprocessing scheme is achieved by taking the advantage of the characteristic geometry of the meteorite-like target into consideration. That is, we only take the clustered high temperature image points making the shape of a slender cylinder ended with a broom-like exhaust fume into consideration. Then we can spatial-filter or pre-extract the cylinder by its geometrical property before we apply the LPED method. This will then result in a super-fast detection, super-fast tracking and super-fast targeting on the CM (center of mass) point of the cylinder. This CM point is just the “heart” of the flying missile. Incorporating this targeting system with a high power laser gun through the use of a Wollaston prism, an air-borne instant detect-instant-kill SAM killer system may then be constructed.
