Paper Abstract

The Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN) as described by Specht''3 has been successfully applied to a number of emitter correlation problems involving operational data for training and testing of the neural net work. The PNN has been found to be a reliable classification tool for determining emitter type or even identifying specific emitter platforms given appropriate representative data sets for training con sisting only of parametric data from electronic intelligence (ELINT) reports. Four separate feasibility studies have been conducted to prove the usefulness of PNN in this application area: . Hull-to-emitter correlation (HULTEC) for identification of seagoing emitter platforms . Identification of landbased emitters from airborne sensors . Pulse sorting according to emitter of origin . Emitter typing based on a dynamically learning neural network. 1 .
