This paper describes the development of linear pyroelectric array systems for classification of human, animal, and vehicle targets. The pyroelectric array is simulated to produce binary profiles of targets. The profiles are classified based on height to width ratio using Naïve Bayesian classifiers. Profile widths of targets can vary due to the speed of the target. Target speeds were calculated using two techniques; two array columns, and a tilted array. The profile width was modified by the calculated speeds to show an improvement in classification results.
