<p>Advanced correlation filter synthesis algorithms to achieve rotation invariance are described. We use a specified form for the filter as the rotation invariance constraint and derive a general closed-form solution for a multiclass rotation-invariant filter that can recognize a number of different objects. By requiring the filter to minimize the average correlation plane energy, we produce a multiclass rotation invariant (RI) RI-MACE filter, which controls correlation plane sidelobes and improves discrimination against false targets. To improve noise performance, we require the filter to minimize a weighted sum of correlation plane signal and noise energy. Initial test results of all filters are provided.</p>
