As a very recent technique for time series analysis, Singular Spectrum Analysis (SSA) has been applied in many diverse areas, where an original 1D signal can be decomposed into a sum of components including varying trends, oscillations and noise. Considering pixel based spectral profiles as 1D signals, in this paper, SSA has been applied in Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) for effective feature extraction. By removing noisy components in extracting the features, the discriminating ability of the features has been much improved. Experiments show that this SSA approach supersedes the Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) technique from which our work was originally inspired, where improved results in effective data classification using Support Vector Machine (SVM) are also reported.
