Abstract
IN RESPONSE TO THE THREAT OF ROAD-MOBILE AND RAIL-MOBILE INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILES, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THE UNITED STATES HAVE THE CAPABILITY OF DETECTING AND IDENTIFYING THESE ELUSIVE TARGETS. MULTISPECTRAL SIGNATURE DETECTION IS A TOOL THAT CAN BE USED AS A FRONT END FILTER FOR OTHER SENSORS. MTL HAS BEEN USING A 63 CHANNEL MULTISPECTRAL IMAGING SPECTRORADIOMETER FOR COLLECTING DATA ON TARGETS AND BACKGROUNDS. THIS DATA HAS BEEN ANALYZED AND PROCESSED THROUGH TRANSFORMATIONS THAT HAVE DISCRIMINATED BETWEEN CAMOUFLAGE THAT WAS DEPLOYED IN THE AREA AND THE BACKGROUND. THIS TECHNOLOGY HAS GREAT POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPING A FLIGHT DEPLOYABLE, REAL TIME CAMOUFLAGE DETECTOR. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO VERIFY THE FEASIBILITY OF DETECTING CAMOUFLAGE, AND OTHER MATERIALS ASSOCIATED WITH STRATEGIC RELOCATABLE TARGETS, WITH A MULTISPECTRAL (OR HYPERSPECTRAL) SENSOR.
