1 December 1981 Ground Clutter In Optical Seekers
Author Affiliations +
A new approach to the study of ground clutter radiation in electro-optical missile seekers has been developed that utilizes a comparison between seeker responses for artificial and measured infrared (IR) scenes. Seeker responses were statistically very much the same for both types of input except at a few isolated points thought to be the commonly measured false targets. The result is that it seems false targets and general random fluctuations caused by background features can be treated separately.
