Exo-atmospheric targets are especially difficult to distinguish using currently available techniques, because all target parts follow the same spatial trajectory. The feasibility of distinguishing multiple type components of exo-atmospheric targets is demonstrated by applying the probabilistic neural network. Differences in thermal behavior and time-varying signals of space-objects are analyzed during the selection of features used as inputs of the neural network. A novel multi-colorimetric technology is introduced to measure precisely the temporal evolutional characteristics of temperature and emissivity-area products. To test the effectiveness of the recognition algorithm, the results obtained from a set of synthetic multispectral data set are presented and discussed. These results indicate that the discrimination algorithm can obtain a remarkable success rate.
