Abstract

An on-board mosaic sensor is staring down from a satellite to a fixed point on the ground while collecting frames that contain target signatures and background noise. A dynamic programming algorithm (DPA) has been developed to optimally detect dim moving targets that cross the sensor’s field of view. The algorithm has been described in Part I of this paper. Here, in Part II, we analyze the algorithm performance and compare it with that of a simple assembling of thresholded frames; the DPA’s SNR performance is shown to be at least an order of magnitude better.
