Abstract: This report describes an algorithm for detecting military vehicles in FLIR imagery that will be used as a prescreener to eliminate large areas of the image from further analysis. The output is a list of likely target locations with confidence numbers to be sent to a more complex clutter-rejection algorithm for analysis. The algorithm uses simple features and is intended to be applicable to a wide variety of target-sensor geometries sensor configurations, and applications.
