The sonar target automatic detection based on three-dimensional imaging includes a series of processes, such as sonar imaged preprocessing, noise exclusion, separation of water and stratum, image segmentation, and target discrimination. Using the sonar image preprocessing and SNR, we can effectively achieve the goal of denoising and reinforce.
No target discrimination was required after an irrelevant first cue.
Technical information on radiometry, MTF theory, EOMUX and EMUX, atmospheric transmittance and target discrimination are also explained.
The 360-degree mounted combat patrol (MCP) live-fire exercise (LFX) scenario also forces transition team crews to quickly coordinate between crew members and exercise more disciplined target discrimination. The O/Cs can integrate into the convoy or move to an over watch position based on the engagement to capture adequate notes for the after action review.
"Its capabilities in target discrimination we are just beginning to understand," Horn says.
Coherent techniques and digital processing can also improve capabilities for target discrimination, battlefield identification, and remote sensing systems.
Thus, the goal of target discrimination could not be assessed.) Theodore Postol of MIT has pointed out this was a simplistic test.
use a very novel system of testing target discrimination and reflexive shooting skill.
Except for the unorthodox use of the abbreviation MMW for mm-wave, the chapter is well-written and gives readers an appreciation of the complexity of the various frequency band designations and uses, and introduces such subjects as ECM vulnerability, target discrimination and mm-wave Doppler radars.
Common module systems, EOMUX systems, EMUX systems, two-dimensional MTF, resolution, image quality, sampled-data systems, atmospheric transmittance, atmospheric MTF, target signatures, sensitivity and noise, system performance models, target discrimination and range predictions.
Despite significant electronic clutter, the Aster SAAM system's surveillance, fire control, target discrimination, and terminal-phase intercept were all carried out successfully.
Reflexive firing Tables I through IV (Familiarization, Advanced Familiarization, Qualification, and Target Discrimination) greatly increase the skills of soldiers who carry the M4 or M16.
