Abstract : (1) A constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) has been developed and implemented for real time performance on an inexpensive Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) hardware. (2) An innovative registration algorithm has been developed to register the SAR-passive image pair. (3) A model-based recognition scheme using a model-image alignment approach has been implemented. (4) An end-to-end demonstration of the proof-of-concept demonstration of the SAR-passive image fusion approach has been accomplished.
