Generalized Multivariate Decision Theory: A Novel Target Detection in Clutter Using Joint Bayesian&Generalized Likelihood Tests in Neyman-Pearson De

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Nahum Gat, President – (310) 371-4445
Award Amount: $1,763,549.00
Abstract:
A novel Decision Theoretics algorithm based on cascaded generalized and Bayesian likelihood tests in a Neyman-Pearson detection was demonstrated under Phase-I. OKSI demonstrated EO/IR subpixel target detection, identification, and countermeasure mitigation. The algorithm was tested with the… More
