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

Possibilistic fuzzy local information C-means with automated feature selection for seafloor segmentation

Abstract: The Possibilistic Fuzzy Local Information C-Means (PFLICM) method is presented as a technique to segment side-look synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) imagery into distinct regions of the sea-floor. In this work, we investigate and present the results of an automated… Read More
