A prime application area for expert system technology is that of automatic target recognition. Existing target recognizers by design are not capable of exploiting all of the information contained in a scene during their classification process (contextual cueing of targets for example). This paper describes a Tactical Expert System (TESS) research project being developed at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. Developed on a Symbolics Lisp machine, TESS is a prototype expert system for interpreting the tactical implications of infrared scenes. This paper highlights the basic target recognition features of TESS and describes several areas of activity research being performed to enhance the TESS system.
