Abstract (summary)

The research reported in this dissertation has developed a method for target detection using data from a staring mosaic sensor on a satellite in geosynchronous orbit. Four new applications of one dimensional signal processing algorithms have been investigated. Eight new processing algorithms have been developed. The performance at the task of target detection of twelve algorithms has been evaluated and compared. The sensitivity of two of the algorithms has been evaluated. A simple tracking-detector algorithm has been devised for a final stage in the processing. A very promising system has been worked out by combining several of the algorithms. This system demonstrates that at least in some situations, target detection is possible.
