16 December 1988 Aircraft Recognition Using A Parts Analysis Technique
Author Affiliations +
A knowledge based system for aircraft recognition is described. This system uses a parts matching technique to identify aircraft. The target aspect is used and is determined using motion and skeletal feature analysis. Silhouette models for the particular aspect of the aircraft are generated using the aspect information. A parts analysis that compares the models' parts to the segmented aircraft is used to identify the aircraft. The techniques used for parts analysis, model generation, and aspect determination are described. Also a study is presented which compares the performance of two statistical classifiers to the knowledge based classifier.
