  • This paper presents a LISP based system for signal and image processing. Using an object based approach the system integrates signal and image processing algorithms, supervised and unsupervised neural network algorithms, and mild-level computer vision capabilities, into a cohesive framework. This framework is suitable for prototyping complex algorithms dealing with multiple classes of data. The system, known as VISION, is currently used as a prototyping environment for wide range of scientific applications internal to LLNL. This paper highlights some of the capabilities of VISION, and how they were implemented using the Common LISP Object System, CLOS. 13 refs.
  • In this paper, the authors first demonstrate that the signal received from the laser underwater target detection system may be chaotic through phase space reconstruction, correlation dimension analysis and Lyapunov exponent calculation. Then the result of the correlation dimension analysis is used to construct a neural network predictor which is considered as an approximation of the basic dynamics of the received signal. Finally they introduce a chaos-based detection method and apply it to detect the underwater target. The performance of this new method is superior to that of the conventional method.

  • The use of laser-based electronics in the testing of materials and structures offers various advantages over more traditional ultrasonic methods, but is often less sensitive when applied to real materials. Although high energy laser pulses can generate large ultrasonic displacements, nondestructive evaluation requires that the ablation regime be avoided, thus limiting the amount of optical energy which may be used. For this reason, signal processing of laser generated ultrasonic waveforms detected using laser interferometers may be required to extract the desired information from a nondestructive laser ultrasonic test. A model-based signal processing technique offers a way to enhance the signal-to-noisemore » ratios significantly for ultrasonic waveforms obtained using laser-based systems with the generation of the ultrasound occurring in the nondestructive thermoelastic regime. Under ideal conditions, good signal-to-noise ratios can be achieved using laser-based ultrasonics. However, many materials which need to be tested have less than ideal surface finishes for optical detectors. The application of signal processing to laser-based ultrasonics may provide the necessary improvement in sensitivity. Aussel and Monchalin used cross-correlation methods to extract acoustic velocities and elastic constants from noisy measurements. Once the constraints are made available through experimentation of calculation, it is possible to enhance the noisy interferometer measurements even further by generating a predicted or reference response using a propagation model that captures the essence of the displace signal to be estimated. Using estimates of the required constants, a reasonable reference response can be generated that enables significant enhancement of the measured displacement. This work uses a model-reference approach to increase the signal-to-noise ratio in noisy laser-based ultrasonic waveforms.« less
  • Classical signal processor design techniques are very expensive, time consuming, and result in custom hardware and software that may not be capable of meeting the wide ranging requirements of signal processing applications other than the one for which it was intended. The authors present an organization of a programmable modular signal processor. A data flow concept of control is advocated in order to take advantage of the run-time parallelism inherent in most applications. The attractive features of the system are that it is capable of being realized with a small number of hardware functional units, and it allows the hardwaremore » to be independent of the signal processing application. The system is organized to support a high-level graph-oriented signal processing application description capability in order to simplify the user interface. 12 references.« less
