Author Affiliations +
ATR using HRR-signatures have recently gained lot of attention. A number of classification methods have been proposed using different target descriptions. The traditionally used classifier utilizing mean square error between magnitude only range profiles and templates suffers from problems with interfering scatterers. Several attempts to improve the MSE classifier both during the template formation process and in the matching have been made. We have recently presented a method that matches complex HRR signatures to target descriptions that use scattering centers. This method handle the unknown phases of the centers and thus overcomes the problem of interference between scatterers. In this paper we compare our method with a number of other methods that uses magnitude only range profiles. Those includes Mean-templates, Eigen- templates and the Specular and Diffuse scattering models.
