Title: Impact of material abundances distributions on detection power in hyperspectral images
Author: Bajorski, Peter
Abstract: Recently, we initiated research that attempts to describe performance of the subpixel detectors using analytical formulas. We showed a surprising result that MFD always outperformed OSP in a traditional theoretical formulation of the detection problem. We also showed that this theoretical formulation was not realistic in practical target detection in real spectral images. The purpose of this paper is to give specific formulas for the detection power of MFD and OSP detectors under a more realistic scenario when the background signatures vary in both target and non-target pizel spectra. In this paper, we consider normal (Gaussian) distributions of the abundances of the background signatures. We show under what conditions the MFD outperforms OSP, and when the opposite is true. We show three numerical examples of the balance between the bias of MFD and the large variability if OSP and its impact on the relative performance of these detectors.
