Paper Abstract

This paper keynotes the "Infrared Automatic Target Recognition" session. Its thesis is that: 1) To win in the battlefield of the future against a numerically superior enemy equipped with weapons of unprecedented capabilities, we must have the "force multiplier" promised by technology 2) Automatic target recognition (ATR) is one such technology with attributes that provide this leverage 3) ATR can provide this enhanced performance for several current, specific, combat missions 4) ATR can be applied to broader applications if several technical challenges can be met 5) DoD is recognizing the potential of ATR to provide "the winning edge."
