    Research in the calculation and exploitation of geometric object/image relations suggests new approaches to automatic target recognition (ATR). The resulting conceptual advances have efficiently solved the geometry problem and have transformed the ATR problem into a correspondence problem. This paper provides an analysis of the elementary algorithms which exploit object/image relations as a basis ... View full abstract»

    Automatic face recognition systems have made great strides. They still, however cannot cope with changes due to lighting and cannot detect disguises, Both of these issues are critical for the employment of face recognition systems in high security applications, such as embassy perimeters, federal plazas, mid the like. We propose novel imaging solutions that address these difficult problems. We dem... View full abstract»

    Infrared identification (IRID) is a biometric which offers the security of fingerprints with the convenience of facial recognition. Twenty years after being first proposed IRID systems are becoming marketable. During the intervening time, IR camera technology has improved significantly and price reductions have been dramatic. Further improvements in IR camera sensitivity, array size, and variable ... View full abstract»

    We propose a revolutionary concept for detecting suspects engaged in illegal and potentially harmful activities in or around critical military or civilian installations. We investigate the use of thermal image analysis to detect at a distance facial patterns of anxiety, alertness, and/or fearfulness. This is a totally novel approach to the problem of biometric identification. Instead of focusing o... View full abstract»

  • Region of interest identification, feature extraction, and information fusion in a forward looking infrared sensor used in landmine detection

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):94 - 103
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (272 KB)

    A forward looking infrared sensor used in conjunction with a vehicular based landmine detection system is described. The paper first describes the requirements for vehicularly-deployed forward-looking infrared sensors. This is followed by descriptions of the basic forward looking infrared sensor, its components and its integration to the vehicular platform. This is followed by a description of a n...

    Surface analysis is important for automatic terrain cartography and for airborne navigation. This paper proposes a new approach to shape-from-shading (SFS) in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. The SFS problem is embedded in a Bayesian framework. We maximize the surface orientation probability using SAR image statistics, local smoothing and constraints imposed by object discontinuities. We mod... View full abstract»

    Motivated by the need of the numerous real-world applications, 3D object recognition has become an active research field. The representation describes the sensed data and the object models, and it is a key issue in the recognition process, which decides the match strategy and the effectiveness and robustness of the recognition system. In this paper, we propose an improved 3D object representation ... View full abstract»

    Recognition of occluded objects in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images is a significant problem for automatic target recognition. In this paper, we present a hidden Markov modeling (HMM) based approach for recognizing objects in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. We identify the peculiar characteristics of SAR sensors and using these characteristics we develop feature based multiple models f... View full abstract»

    An algorithm of cancer recognition in ultrasound images is developed in this paper. In order for cancer to survive it develops its own blood supply system, which is different than the supply system of normal tissue. The velocity of the blood flowing through the cancerous blood vessels is different than the velocity of the blood flowing through blood vessels of normal tissue. Due to this fact the u...

  • Simultaneous estimation of optical flow and heat transport in infrared image sequences

    This paper incorporates physical models of heat transport into motion analysis in infrared image sequences. Physical transport processes, such as heat diffusion and decay, are causing time dependent brightness variations, violating the common brightness constancy assumption. Previous approaches to optical flow computation have accommodated violations of brightness constancy with the use of robust ... View full abstract»

    This paper outlines an approach and experimental results for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) object recognition using the MSTAR data. With SAR scattering center locations and magnitudes as features, the invariance of these features is shown with object articulation (e.g., rotation of a tank turret) and with external configuration variants. This scatterer location and magnitude quasi-invariance is u... View full abstract»
