Abstract
New methods that will significantly improve the performance of focal plane array systems are proposed . In particular the problem of target track reacquisition ( lost due to cloud clutter effects) will be studied in detail . We propose to investigate the applications of (1) the method of "smart averaging " ( introduced and developed by Boeing) and extensions thereof (2) Probabilistic methods, to this problem and compare them to the performance of conventional signal processing algorithms. Improved (higher performance) algorithms for focal plane array signal processing
