Abstract : Our work concerns multitarget tracking (MTT) for SDI using optical processing. Our 3 layer system: detection, track initiation, and tracking was detailed in prior reports. Our present work involves a modified optical correlator and a new algorithm for detection, Hough transform extensions for track initiation, and new MTT data and algorithms. We now provide an overview of this work with details given in associated chapters.
