Automatic target recognition using high-resolution radar range-profiles. Abstract. Recognition of aircraft and ground targets from high resolution radar (HRR) range-profiles is a notoriously difficult problem, due in large part to the extreme variability in the data for small changes in target orientation.

the problem is posed in the. end-to-end automatic target detection and recognition (ATD/R) system. The implemented target detection and recognition algorithms use field data collected by the high-range-resolution Jigsaw ladar sensor, as well as some data sets taken with the previous GEN-III ladar sensor [2].

The problem of resolving targets in range is formulated as a hypothesis-testing problem. A generalized likelihood approach is developed and very good results are obtained, e. g., targets separated by more than a pulsewidth can almost always be resolved, Specifically, simulations showed that when using a sampling rate of samples per pulsewidth, two 20 dB nonfluctuating targets can be Cited by: 9.

The information content of radar target signatures is the key aspect for Automatic Target Recognition (ATR). The role of high range resolution is investigated in relation with the. Sensitivity range: up to 20 feet (6 meters) ° x 70° detection range.

The detection of the high-resolution radar (HRR) range-spread targets is studied in this paper and a novel method based on strong scattering centers for detecting range-spread targets in Gaussian clutter is proposed. The proposed detector has a two-threshold scheme. First of all, strong scattering centers of target are obtained by setting a first threshold with certain false alarm probability.

The actual range of a target from the radar is known as slant range. Slant range is the line of sight distance between the radar and the object illuminated. While ground range is the horizontal distance between the emitter and its target and its calculation requires knowledge of the target's elevation.

improvement of the new method was demonstrated. Probabilities of target detection were estimated using Monte-Carlo simulations for a range of target SNR levels, and for a number of di erent target dynamics, in two L-band and X-band radar systems, at a xed false alarm rate.

The proposed method achieved a detection probability of at a lower. How electro-optical sensor modules with full HD resolution or higher, enhance the detection, recognition, and identification capabilities of situational awareness, long- range observation and designator systems.

Description Range resolution of targets using automatic detectors EPUB

To improve the information gathered from situational awareness, long-range observation and designator systems, the big trend is to gather full motion video 24/7 with the addition. The automatic scoring issue is divided into three problems: a target detection, a holes detection, and a hole analysis.

The target is detected on the base of a bull–eye localization. The holes. A laser rangefinder, also known as a laser telemeter, is a rangefinder that uses a laser beam to determine the distance to an object.

The most common form of laser rangefinder operates on the time of flight principle by sending a laser pulse in a narrow beam towards the object and measuring the time taken by the pulse to be reflected off the target and returned to the sender.

For these usually low-intensity and low-energy secondary beams, we have developed the new MAYA detector based on the active-target concept. This device allows to use a relatively thick target without loss of resolution by using the detection gas as target material.

Dedicated 3D tracking, particle identification, energy loss and range. If the detector size is reduced by 2×, the focal ratio must also decrease 2× to maintain the same sensitivity. Figure 5. Detection range for a 1-m target using a 1/2-inch format CCD camera with a fixed mm focal length lens.

The aperture diameter decreases as the focal ratio increases. The atmospheric transmission is assumed to be unity. Introduction to Target Detection Figure shows the scenario taken as the starting point for discussing the influence of the various components in the IR observation (detection) process, such as the IR system, type of target, weather and environmental parameters, and countermeasures such as camouflage and smokescreens.

IR Detection Process. RADAR = Radio Detection and Ranging • Detects targets by receipt of reflected echoes from transmitted RF pulses • Measures metric coordinates of detected targets: Range - Doppler/velocity of targets - Angle (azimuth and/or elevation) • Special-purpose radars also measure: Target size / shape (target.

Section snippets Experimental setup. A small scale Δ E-TOF detector prototype [17] was realized with two scintillator modules placed at a nominal distance d = 40 cm. Each module consisted of a plastic scintillator bar (EJ, Eljen Technology) of 40 × 2 × 0.

3 cm 3, wrapped with reflective aluminum and darkening black end of each bar was polished and optically coupled to four SiPMs. The apparent cross-range position of a moving target in a SAR image is a function of both the unknown true cross-range position and the velocity of the target.

As such the SAR-GMTI problem can be broken into two parts: the detection of the target (apparent cross-range), and the determination of the target’s velocity or of its true cross-range. Radar is a detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, angle, or velocity of objects.

It can be used to detect aircraft, ships, spacecraft, guided missiles, motor vehicles, weather formations, and terrain.A radar system consists of a transmitter producing electromagnetic waves in the radio or microwaves domain, a transmitting antenna, a receiving antenna (often the same.

When a target appears on the radar display and, in the case of automatic acquisition, enters within the acquisition area chosen by the observer or, in the case of manual acquisition, has been acquired by the observer, the ARPA should present in a period of not more than 1 min an indication of the target's motion trend, and display within 3 min.

The resolution at the center circle of this target is lp/mm. Alternatively, the R1L1S3P target has 72 bars over °, and the resolution at the center is lp/mm. Both targets also have a Ø2 00 µm center circle and are useful for determining the resolution of an optical system by noting how close to the center of the pattern an.

Range resolution and bearing resolution. As the name suggests, better bearing resolution means radar can paint two near targets on same bearing as separate ones. Bearing resolution depends upon Horizontal beam width of the radio wave. Same way, better range resolution means radar can paint two close targets (on different bearing) as separate ones.

Resolution Test Targets are used to measure the accuracy or performance of an imaging system for applications such as microscopy or imaging. Resolution Test Targets are inserted into an imaging system to provide measurement capabilities. Resolution Test Targets use a variety of patterns including Ronchi or star to measure a system’s resolution.

Resolution – a high resolution can detect smallest changes in the position of the target; Range – involves choosing the sensors based on measurement limits and compared with the desired detection range of the robot; Control Interface – to interface the sensor you have to know the types of the sensors.
