Cutting-edge Mathematical Tools in Processing and Analysis of Signals in Marine and Navy
Signal processing plays a pivotal role in information gathering and decision making. This paper presents and compares different signal processing techniques used in marine and navy applications, primarily based on using wavelets as kernel. The article covers Fourier transform, time frequency wavelet based techniques such as bandelets, contourlets, curvelets, edgelets, wedgelets, shapelets, and ridgelets. In the example section of the paper, several transform techniques are presented and commented on the harbour surveillance video stream example.
