The purpose of this study was to investigate multi-spectral tracking. Various algorithms were investigated and developed to enhance the contrast between target and non-target classes. Different tracking algorithms were implemented on the resulting grayscale input. A physical tracking system consisting of a video input processor and DSP was designed and built to implement algorithms and investigate the viability of realtime multi-spectral tracking. It is illustrated that conventional intensity tracking clouds the available information and that by studying various spectral inputs information is extracted more efficiently from the available data.
