3D Automatic Target Recognition for Future LIDAR Missiles

Kechagias-Stamatis, O., Aouf, N. ORCID: 0000-0001-9291-4077 & Richardson, M. (2016). 3D Automatic Target Recognition for Future LIDAR Missiles. IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, 52(6), pp. 2662-2675. doi: 10.1109/taes.2016.150300


We present a real-time three-dimensional automatic target recognition approach appropriate for future light detection and ranging-based missiles. Our technique extends the speeded-up robust features method into the third dimension by solving multiple two-dimensional problems and performs template matching based on the extreme case of a single pose per target. Evaluation on military targets shows higher recognition rates under various transformations and perturbations at lower processing time compared to state-of-the-art approaches.
