Abstract

A technique in which the filter modulation is included in the synthesis of a synthetic-discriminant-function matched spatial filter (SDF MSF) is presented. In the filter synthesis, a system of simultaneous nonlinear equations is solved with an iteration procedure. A computer simulation of the new method using thresholded images of the Space Shuttle over a range of aspect angles was performed for phase-only filters (POFs) and binary-phase-only filters (BPOFs). The filters constructed are capable of obtaining the specified peak-correlation response to within 1% with a high signal-to-clutter-ratio for the one-class problem, the two-class problem, and the multilevel problem. In contrast, conventional projection SDF POFs and BPOFs are unable to produce the desired peak-correlation response.
