Efficient CNN Architecture for Multi-Modal Aerial View Object Classification
The NTIRE 2021 workshop features a Multi-modal Aerial View Object Classification Challenge. Its focus is on multi-sensor imagery classification in order to improve the performance of automatic target recognition (ATR) systems. In this paper we describe our entry in this challenge, a method focused on efficiency and low computational time, while maintaining a high level of accuracy. The method is a convolutional neural network with 11 convolutions, 1 max pooling layers and 3 residual blocks which has a total of 373.130 parameters. The method ranks 3rd in the Track 2 (SAR+EO) of the challenge.
