ISAR Image Recognition Algorithm and Neural Network Implementation


Cite

The image recognition and identification procedures are comparatively new in the scope of ISAR (Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar) applications and based on specific defects in ISAR images, e.g., missing pixels and parts of the image induced by target’s aspect angles require preliminary image processing before identification. The present paper deals with ISAR image enhancement algorithms and neural network architecture for image recognition and target identification. First, stages of the image processing algorithms intended for image improving and contour line extraction are discussed. Second, an algorithm for target recognition is developed based on neural network architecture. Two Learning Vector Quantization (LVQ) neural networks are constructed in Matlab program environment. A training algorithm by teacher is applied. Final identification decision strategy is developed. Results of numerical experiments are presented.
