Paper Abstract

This paper will serve to bring on board potential contributors to the task of developing real-time processing techniques for aircraft identification of friend, foe or neutral (IFFN) in a noncooperative target recognition (NCTR) environment. An overview of current digital processing techniques and data correlation for NCTR is presented. Reference is made to Figure 1, block diagram of Wideband Data Image Processor of which the first item of this paper will address. These items include: (1) Background of Wideband Radar, Digital Imaging Analysis , (1A) Motion Compensation, (1B) Image Generation, Scaling, (1C) Translation Identification, (2) Motivations and Advantages of Optical Processing for IFFN/NCTR, (3) RADC Development Efforts, (4) Current Deficiencies and Future Development Plans.
