Paper Abstract

A historical perspective on the evolution of performance evaluation technology for automatic target recognition (ATR) systems is presented. It is shown that the ad hoc and artistic evaluation techniques of the past are now evolving into scientific approaches. The most perspective areas of this technology include: (1) first principle coupled, multi-sensor modeling of objects, environment, atmosphere, and vegetation; (2) integration of models with the task of ATR algorithm development; (3) integration of a new generation of parallel processor that can process every pixel of an image without the need for data reduction; (4) extending the instrumentation control of ATR to include sensor selection and sensor fusion; and (5) development of signal metrics for radar, acoustic and ladar, and linking these metrics to phenomenological sources.
