Multiple Instance Choquet Integral with Binary Fuzzy Measures for Remote Sensing Classifier Fusion with Imprecise Labels

Abstract: Classifier fusion methods integrate complementary information from multiple classifiers or detectors and can aid remote sensing applications such as target detection and hyperspectral image analysis. The Choquet integral (CI), parameterized by fuzzy measures (FMs), has been widely used in… Read More

Evaluation of image features for discriminating targets from false positives in synthetic aperture sonar imagery

Abstract: With the increasing popularity of using autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) to gather large quantities of Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) seafloor imagery, the burden on human operators to identify targets in these seafloor images has increased significantly. Existing methods of… Read More

Deep convolutional neural network target classification for underwater synthetic aperture sonar imagery

Abstract: In underwater synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) imagery, there is a need for accurate target recognition algorithms. Automated detection of underwater objects has many applications, not the least of which being the safe extraction of dangerous explosives. In this paper,… Read More

Developing Spectral Libraries Using Multiple Target Multiple Instance Adaptive Cosine/Coherence Estimator

Abstract: Traditional methods of developing spectral libraries for unmixing hyperspectral images tend to require domain knowledge of the study area and the material’s spectra. In this paper, we propose using the Multiple Target Multiple Instance Adaptive Cosine/Coherence Estimator (Multi-Target MI-ACE)… Read More

Investigation of Initialization Strategies for the Multiple Instance Adaptive Cosine Estimator

Abstract: Sensors which use electromagnetic induction (EMI) to excite a response in conducting bodies have long been investigated for subsurface explosive hazard detection. In particular, EMI sensors have been used to discriminate between different types of objects, and to detect… Read More

Comparison of Possibilistic Fuzzy Local Information C-Means and Possibilistic K-Nearest Neighbors for Synthetic Aperture Sonar Image Segmentation

Abstract: Synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) imagery can generate high resolution images of the seafloor. Thus, segmentation algorithms can be used to partition the images into different seafloor environments. In this paper, we compare two possibilistic segmentation approaches. Possibilistic approaches allow… Read More

Comparison of Hand-held WEMI Target Detection Algorithms

Abstract: Wide-band Electromagnetic Induction Sensors (WEMI) have been used for a number of years in subsurface detection of explosive hazards. While WEMI sensors have proven effective at localizing objects exhibiting large magnetic responses, detecting objects lacking or containing very low… Read More
