Abstract
An algorithm is described for estimating the weights of gray-scale templates used for morphological feature detection. The problem of finding optimal templates for object detection is formulated as a statistical estimation problem. The problem is solved using a gradient descent algorithm. This procedure is applied to the problem of detecting trucks in simulated SAR imagery. Good performance is achieved with 22 of 24 trucks being identified in a test set and no false alarms.
