Abstract
We describe a digital processing technique for measuring local isotropic and directional textural features, and we use the textural information so obtained to perform automatic target detection. The present targets, which consist of an APC, a tank, a truck and a helicopter located against backgrounds of vegetation and ground terrain, are difficult to detect using differences in average gray level or location of target edges alone.
