Patent image
CCDC ARL

A computer-implemented method for tracking a small sample size user-identified object comprising extracting a plurality of blocks of pixels from a first frame of a plurality of frames of a scene detected by a hyperspectral (HS) sensor, comparing a reference sample of the object with the plurality of blocks to generate a first attribute set corresponding to contrasting HS response values of the reference sample and HS response values of each block of the plurality of blocks, comparing a test sample of a portion of the first frame to each block of the plurality of blocks to generate a second attribute set corresponding to contrasting HS response values of the test samples and HS response values of each block of the plurality of blocks and determining if the object exists in two or more of the frames by comparing the first HS attribute set with the second HS attribute set.
