Title: System for detecting objects in streaming 3D images formed from data acquired with a medium penetrating sensor

A detection system that detects subsurface objects within a medium and estimates various features of the objects is provided. The detection system receives a streaming sequence of image frames of the medium at various along-medium locations. An image frame contains voxel values (intensities) representing characteristics of the medium across the medium and in the depth (range) direction. The detection system depth-compensates the intensities for determining which voxels are part of an object using an unsupervised binary classifier. The detection system then connects object voxels into distinct objects and recursively estimates the features of those objects as the image frames stream based on the locations and intensities of the object voxels.
