A technique for multiclass optical pattern recognition of different perspective views of an object is described. Each multiclass representation of an object is described as an orthonormal basis function expansion, and a single averaged matched spatial filter is then produced from a weighted linear combination of these functions. The technique is demonstrated for a terminal missile guidance application using IR tank imagery.
