Abstract

A new measure, termed the peak location error (PLE), is introduced to characterize the ability of a correlation filter to locate a target in the input. It is shown that the filter minimizing the PLE is the classical matched filter. Comparison is made between the minimal PLE and the error achievable with phase-only filters.
