In this study, the contribution of utilizing hyperspectral unmixing algorithms on signature based target detection algorithms is studied. Spectral Angle Mapper (SAM), Spectral Matched Filter (SMF) and Adaptive Cosine Estimator (ACE) algorithms are selected as target detection methods and the performance change related to the target spectral acquisition is evaluated. The spectral signature of the desired target, corn, is acquired from ASD hyperspectral library as well as from the hypespectral unmixing endmembers with a minimum angular distance to ASD signature. It is seen that the performance of the corn detection has increased significantly with the utilization of the closest endmember extracted from the hyperspectral data cube. Among all methods, SAM has been designated as the most successful method based on the Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) curves.


Fully-Automatic Target Detection and Tracking for Real-Time, Airborne Imaging Applications
Alkanat, Tunc; Tunali, Emre; Oz, Sinan (2015-03-14)
In this study, an efficient, robust algorithm for automatic target detection and tracking is introduced. Procedure starts with a detection phase. Proposed method uses two alternatives for the detection phase, namely maximally stable extremal regions detector and Canny edge detector. After detection, regions of interest are evaluated and eliminated according to their compactness and effective saliency. The detection process is repeated for a predetermined number of pyramid levels where each level processes a...

TRACEMIN Fiedler A Parallel Algorithm for Computing the Fiedler Vector
Manguoğlu, Murat; Saied, Faisal; Sameh, Ahmed (null; 2010-06-25)
The eigenvector corresponding to the second smallest eigenvalue of the Laplacian of a graph, known as the Fiedler vector, has a number of applications in areas that include matrix reordering, graph partitioning, protein analysis, data mining, machine learning, and web search. The computation of the Fiedler vector has been regarded as an expensive process as it involves solving a large eigenvalue problem. We present a novel and efficient parallel algorithm for computing the Fiedler vector of large graphs bas...

In Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, one of the crucial issues is the representation of the data. As the data become heterogeneous and large-scale, single kernel methods become insufficient to classify nonlinear data. The finite combinations of kernels are limited up to a finite choice. In order to overcome this discrepancy, we propose a novel method of "infinite" kernel combinations for learning problems with the help of infinite and semi-infinite programming regarding all elements in kernel space. Looking...
Recent results on Bayesian Cramér-Rao bounds for jump Markov systems
Fritsche, Carsten; Orguner, Umut; Svensson, Lennart; Gustafsson, Fredrik (2016-07-08)
In this paper, recent results on the evaluation of the Bayesian Cramer-Rao bound for jump Markov systems are presented. In particular, previous work is extended to jump Markov systems where the discrete mode variable enters into both the process and measurement equation, as well as where it enters exclusively into the measurement equation. Recursive approximations are derived with finite memory requirements as well as algorithms for checking the validity of these approximations are established. The tightnes...
