Paper Abstract

This paper examines some of the reasons that tactical target recognition performance has not yet achieved a level necessary to satisfy the requirements for a totally autonomous target recognition system. In particular, those factors that adversely impact recognizer performance are identified and qualitatively analyzed to show how they impact performance. These factors include: inadequate pixels on target, random thermal signature, training with inappropriate data sets, unknown target aspect angle, and segmentation errors. The paper also identifies several techniques for improving recognition performance.
