Systems Analysis and Modeling in Defense: Development, Trends, and Issues

This publication includes the lawsuits of an interna­ tional symposium dedicated to Modeling and research of safeguard strategies within the context of land/air conflict. It used to be subsidized by means of Panel VII (on safeguard functions of Operational examine) of NATO's protection study crew (DRG) and happened 27-29 July 1982 at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

The TAF keeps track of the turning angle of the contour, increasing with convex regions and decreasing with concave regions. The turning angle of a segment si is the difference or step between TC (si ) and TC (si+1 ). The turning angle ranges in the interval (−180◦ , 180◦ ). Negative values represent concave regions and positive values represent convex regions. For a convex contour, TC (sn ) is a monotonic function, starting at an arbitrary value φ and increasing to φ + 2π . For a nonconvex polygon, TC (sn ) can become arbitrarily large, because it accumulates the total amount of turning angles, obeying the range of 2π between the starting point and the final point [24].

This may not be a desirable step, depending on the application. Rangayyan et al. [14] proposed a polygonal modeling procedure that eliminates this limitation of the method of Ventura and Chen [36]. The procedure proposed by Rangayyan et al. [14] begins by segmenting the given closed contour into a set of piecewise-continuous curved parts; this is achieved by locating the points of inflection on the contour, based on its first, second, and third derivatives. The algorithm retains the initial points of inflection in the final polygonal model, thereby constraining the fit of the model to the contour provided.
