Abstract

We analyze the performance of a nonlinear correlation called the Locally Adaptive Contrast Invariant Filter in the presence of spatially disjoint noise under the peak-to-sidelobe ratio (PSR) metric. We show that the PSR using the nonlinear correlation improves as the disjoint noise intensity increases, whereas, for common linear filtering, it goes to zero. Experimental results as well as comparisons with a classical matched filter are given.
