Abstract:

In this paper we present a novel synthesis of image processing algorithms which enable high performance in an ATR system for ladar seekers. Ladar data presents both unique capabilities and problems for image processing. We will discuss unique approaches to incorporate the three dimensional nature of the data, while handling range dropouts and the ground plane background in a manner that allows for robust ATR performance.
