Paper Abstract

An experiment is described in which an automatic target recognizer (ATR) algorithm is tested against real forward-looking infrared imagery and synthetic imagery. The synthetic imagery was generated by two different approaches being developed by the U.S. Army. The purpose of the experiment was to establish quantitatively the relationship between ATR performance on real and on synthetic data. The metrics for comparison are probability of detection, conditional probability of identification, and false-alarm rate.
