The observation of closely-spaced objects using limited-resolution Infrared (IR) sensor systems can result in merged object measurements on the focal plane. These Unresolved Closely-Spaced Objects (UCSOs) can significantly hamper the performance of surveillance systems. Algorithms are desired which robustly resolve UCSO signals such that (1) the number of targets, (2) the target locations on the focal plane, (3) the uncertainty in the location estimates, and (4) the target intensity signals are… CONTINUE READING
