Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A full-wave electromagnetic-scattering model is utilized to effect a land-mine detector via a multiresolution template-matching-like algorithm. Detection is performed on fully polarimetric ultra-wideband (50-1200 MHz) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery. Multiresolution template matching is effected via discrete-wavelet transform (DWT) of the SAR imagery and the parametric target-signatures (templates). Detector results are presented in the form of receiver operating characteristics (ROCs).
