Abstract

The use of aerial hyperspectral imagery (HSI) in remote sensing is a rapidly growing research area. Currently, targets are generally detected by looking for distinct spectral features of objects under surveillance. For example, a camouflaged vehicle, designed to blend into background trees and grass in the visible spectrum, can be revealed using spectral features in the near-infrared region of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum.
