In the present paper a methodological scheme bringing together common Acoustic Classification Systems (ACS) and a promising data decomposition approach called Independent Component Analysis (ICA), is demonstrated regarding its suitability for detecting small targets in SSS imageries. Usually in the first stages of an ACS, a large number of features are… CONTINUE READING
