Research Institution
The objective of this program is to develop algorithms for detecting and classifying cruise missiles observed from space platforms in support of future theater advance warning systems. The algorithms will be developed for hyperspectral sensor data with hyperspatial resolution (imaging with 2-5m spatial resolution). Detection of cruse missiles from space is distinct from most applications of hyperspectral imaging since the target of interest is moving. Further, in the context of hyperspatial imaging the target movement can be large relative to the spatial and temporal sampling. It follows that the architecture of the hyperspectral-hyperspatial sensor must be appropriate for detection and classification of moving targets. The algorithms developed will be specific to moving cruise missiles observed with a CD sensor positioned on a space platform. These algorithms are expected them to be similar to those SSSC has developed for shoulder-launched missiles and air-to-ground rockets.
