Abstract
"First-generation" ATRs represented the first, concerted attempts by Government and industry to automatically exploit digital FLIR (forward looking infrared) imagery. However, these ATRs suffered fundamental limitations which rendered them unacceptable for operational use. The incorporation of AI (artificial intelligence) in ATR designs has the potential to overcome these limitations. The AI Committee of the ATRWG (Automatic Target Recognizer Working Group) is educating the ATR community on AI technology and evaluating the utility of various AI techniques in ATRs.
