Paper Abstract

Evaluation is a cornerstone of AFRL/SN research into target detection, tracking, and identification. A formal evaluation procedure provides quantitative feedback on algorithm performance and a means for monitoring algorithm improvement and for comparison of different algorithms on an objective and equal basis. AFRL/SN has invested in an Advanced Real-Time in the Cockpit Cell (ARC) facility as a part of the Collaborative Engineering Environment (CEE) that allows for rapid evaluation of target detection, tracking, and identification algorithms within a comprehensive simulation environment that includes target simulators, sensor simulators, analyst workstations, strike simulators and weapon flyout. A testbed is under development to support the evaluation of RF moving target technology as well as maturity assessments of the technologies for transition.
