A class of Robust Estimates for Detection in Hyperspectral Images using Elliptical Distributions Backgroung

Abstract : When dealing with impulsive background echoes, Gaussian model is no longer pertinent. We study in this paper the class of elliptically contoured (EC) distributions. They provide a multivariate location-scatter family of distributions that primarily serve as long tailed alternatives to the multivariate normal model. They are proven to represent a more accurate characterization of HSI data than models based on the multivariate Gaussian assumption. For data in ℝk, robust proposals for the sample covariance estimate are the M-estimators. We have also analyzed the performance of an adaptive non- Gaussian detector built with these improved estimators. Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) is pursued to allow the detector independence of nuisance parameters and false alarm regulation.
