Paper Abstract

We discuss the applicability of multi-layer Neural Networks (NN) to automatic target classification in the challenging environment of Acquisition-Tracking-Pointing (ATP) systems. The merits of NN are discussed in the context of a limited training data base, which is characteristic of practical ATP situations. A computational method is reviewed which allows the quantification of large-scale NN performance for the important small-sample case. In addition, Perceptron learning for the classification of target stochastic images governed by the Poisson distribution is examined with the aid of computer simulations.
