    In this article, we have presented a morphology-based method for building recognition from FLIR image sequences captured by the midwave calibrated camera in dense urban areas. Based on the imaging parameters (the horizontal and vertical angle of field of view, the imaging distance, and the elevation), the imaging size of the building target can be determined in real time, and then the SE, which ha...

    Satellite formations offer more powerful and robust architectures than a single, traditional large satellite. Investigations into the relative attitude control of satellite formations are important for the applications of future space missions. This article addresses two issues concerning the coordinated attitude control of satellite formation flying: (1) decentralized coordination strategies of m... View full abstract»

    Future spaceborne SAR missions will require complete and frequent coverage of the Earth with a reasonably high geometric resolution. To achieve this imaging capacity, multichannel SAR systems with a planar antenna will be widely adopted in the next generation spaceborne microwave remote sensing missions. However, the high data rate, the increased system complexity, the difficulty of multichannel s... View full abstract»

    In [11], we showed that an efficient DP-TBD implementation for MTT can be achieved by using the following strategies: 1. Exploiting the structure of the MTT problem: the high-dimensional maximization in DP-TBD can be solved suboptimally in a cheaper but accurate way by using the inherent structure of the tracking model [6]. When targets are clustered into well-separated groups, there is no measure... View full abstract»
