Fractal Analysis of Seafloor Textures for Target Detection in Synthetic Aperture Sonar Imagery

Published: May 3rd, 2018

Abstract: Fractal analysis of an image is a mathematical approach to generate surface related features from an image or image tile that can be applied to image segmentation and to […]

Comparison of Prescreening Algorithms for Target Detection in Synthetic Aperture Sonar Imagery

Published: Mar 23rd, 2018

Abstract: Automated anomaly and target detection are commonly used as a prescreening step within a larger target detection and target classification framework to find regions of interest for further analysis. […]

Multiple Instance Choquet Integral Classifier Fusion and Regression for Remote Sensing Applications

Published: Mar 13th, 2018

Abstract: In classifier (or regression) fusion the aim is to combine the outputs of several algorithms to boost overall performance. Standard supervised fusion algorithms often require accurate and precise training […]

Target Concept Learning From Ambiguously Labeled Data

Published: Dec 18th, 2017

Abstract: The multiple instance learning problem addresses the case where training data comes with label ambiguity, i.e., the learner has access only to inaccurately labeled data. For example, in target […]

Multiple Instance Choquet Integral For MultiResolution Sensor Fusion

Published: Dec 18th, 2017

Abstract: Imagine you are traveling to Columbia,MO for the first time. On your flight to Columbia, the woman sitting next to you recommended a bakery by a large park with […]

Multiple Instance Hybrid Estimator for Hyperspectral Target Characterization and Sub-pixel Target Detection

Published: Oct 31st, 2017

Abstract: The Multiple Instance Hybrid Estimator for discriminative target characterization from imprecisely labeled hyperspectral data is presented. In many hyperspectral target detection problems, acquiring accurately labeled training data is difficult. […]

Multiple Instance Dictionary Learning for Beat-to-Beat Heart Rate Monitoring from Ballistocardiograms

Published: Jun 15th, 2017

Abstract: A multiple instance dictionary learning approach, Dictionary Learning using Functions of Multiple Instances (DLFUMI), is used to perform beat-to-beat heart rate estimation and to characterize heartbeat signatures from ballistocardiogram […]

LBP Features for Hand-Held Ground Penetrating Radar

Published: Apr 24th, 2017

Abstract: Ground penetrating radar (GPR) has the ability to detect buried targets with little or no metal content. Achieving superior detection performance with a hand-held GPR can be very challenging […]

Fourier Features for Explosive Hazard Detection using a Wideband Electromagnetic Induction Sensor

Fourier Features for Explosive Hazard Detection using a Wideband Electromagnetic Induction Sensor

Published: Apr 14th, 2017

Abstract: Sensors which use electromagnetic induction (EMI) to excite a response in conducting bodies have been investigated for the purpose of detecting buried explosives. In particular, wide band EMI sensors […]

Environmentally-Adaptive Target Recognition for SAS Imagery

Published: Mar 17th, 2017

Abstract: Characteristics of underwater targets displayed in synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) imagery vary depending on their environmental context. Discriminative features in sea grass may differ from the features that are […]
