Paper Abstract

Automatic target recognizers (ATRs) have been under development for the last 10 to 15 years and have apparently failed to-date to live up to the great expectations of the Department of the Defense (DoD) community. In this paper, I will try to show that the poor press being generated about ATR performance results in recent government field tests should not be misinterpreted as a blanket indictment of the entire ATR development community.
