High spatial resolution calibrated airborne multispectral scanner imagery of 7 terrain backgrounds have been analyzed statistically. The objective of analysis is to develop a methodology for characterizing various background types with parameters that can be used reliably in estimating sensor performance capabilities, especially false alarm rates. Imagery in several reflective IR spectral bands 1.0-1.4, 1.5-1.8, and 2.0-2.6 micrometers and thermal IR bands 4.5-5.5 9.3-11.7 micrometers have been analyzed for residential, industrial, mountainous, forested and desert terrain.
