A hierarchical classifier using a new SVRDM (support vector representation and discrimination machine) is proposed for automatic target recognition. An accuracy and distance-based method is used to design a hierarchical classifier. Our SVRDM hierarchical classifier has the ability to reject unseen non-object classes and clutter inputs. Uses of both iconic and spatial frequency domain features are considered. Initial recognition and rejection test results on infrared (IR) data are excellent.
