Radiance Library Forecasting for Time-Critical Hyperspectral Target Detection Systems

Automated detection of targets continues to be a top priority for future tactical hyperspectral sensing platforms. Due to its large number of fine frequency bands across a wide portion of the spectrum (UV to LWIR), hyperspectral technology offers enhanced discrimination capability and can be used to detect and identify various materials of interest. Hyperspectral imagery (HIS) data and derived information have shown the potential for meeting requirements not achievable with other collection syst
