Paper Abstract

Many automatic target recognition systems work by matching test profiles against profile templates from various parts of the targets. These templates are generally constructed for uniform-width sub-targets constructed out of the targets being considered. In this paper we present a heuristic search based algorithm for constructing optimal-sized sub- targets which may be of varying widths. We show the improvements that ar obtained by constructing templates for sub-targets identified by the search algorithm. The reduction in mean square errors is reported and also the performance of two classification test runs.
