  • Vehicle classification is a challenging problem, since vehicles can take on many different appearances and sizes due to their form and function, and the viewing conditions. The low resolution of uncooled-infrared video and the large variability of naturally occurring environmental conditions can make this an even more difficult problem. We develop a multilook fusion approach for improving the performance of a single look system. Our single look approach is based on extracting a signature consisting of a histogram of gradient orientations from a set of regions covering the moving object. We use the multinomial pattern matching algorithm to match themore » signature to a database of learned signatures. To combine the match scores of multiple signatures from a single tracked object, we use the sequential probability ratio test. Using real infrared data we show excellent classification performance, with low expected error rates, when using at least 25 looks.« less

  • The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission is dedicated to improving the understanding of the global water cycle by measuring and mapping precipitation throughout the globe. The core GPM satellite will incorporate two separate precipitation radars: one operating at Ku-band (13.6 GHz) and the other at Ka band (35.6 GHz). Each radar beam will be steered such that they both point to the same location in the atmosphere. The main purpose of the dual-frequency radar system is to resolve the DSD in precipitation as well as discriminate between rain and ice. With the two beams collocated on the same precipitation volume,more » new algorithms are being developed to reliably es timate attenuation and rain rate. Any algorithm is based on models of precipitation. In addition, the GPM system assumes collocated beams and matched resolu tion volumes. Electromagnetic and microphysical models have been developed based on ground-based dual-frequency radar data at S-band to simulate Ku- and Ka-band results for comparison with the new GPM algorithms. This paper evaluates the dual-frequency inversion algorithm with synthesized S-band and known perfect data and presents results. Results show the expected performance of the new dual-precipitation radar algorithms with the potential for guiding algorithm and system improvements.« less
