Abstract

Our research has shown that the autocorrelation peaks of a binary joint transform correlator are affected by input scenes’ backgrounds. An adaptive method is proposed to overcome this problem. The image of interest is first extracted from the background based on the position of the highest correlation peak of the input and reference images. The extracted image is then correlated with the reference to obtain the final correlation peak. Numerical simulations showed that the final autocorrelation peak is the maximum constant for a specified reference image.
