The United States Navy's worldwide operations on land, at sea, and in the air require it to be capable of performing a wide variety of missions. This paper will attempt to define how Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) technology, as it relates to infrared (IR) systems, is currently being used, where it will be used in the future, and what the perception of ATR technology in the Navy is. Rather than try to cover all possible Navy missions which are relevant to ATR technology, this paper addresses three specific missions in the area of airborne IR weapon systems. These areas which are currently receiving research and development emphasis in the Navy include IR Ship Classification, Long Range Detection of Non-Resolvable IR Aircraft Signatures, and Ground Target Cueing.
