Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and implementation of a framework used to develop and assess novel classification algorithms applied to imagery from diverse sources, such as in-service thermal sensors and experimental burst illumination lasers. The framework is designed to aid with the development of algorithms where both high classification performance and fast execution are required. It addresses the issue of how to effectively divide development time and effort between the potentially conflicting tasks of improving performance and speed. The development of the framework and its implementation in MATLAB® are described, along with three short case studies showing its application during recent projects.
