Abstract

We introduce a new matched filter method that yields correlation peaks that are invariant with changes in the illumination of any targets. A scene containing objects at unknown locations is first subjected to a logarithmic transformation that changes the multiplicative constant to an additive background, which is then discriminated against by means of a composite filter containing a cameo of the true target and a term with which to discriminate against other false targets. Experimental results are shown.
