24 August 1988 Synthetic Image Generation For Automatic Target Recognizer Evaluation
Author Affiliations +
The advantages of using a synthetic data base for developing Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) algorithms are well recognized. Primarily, a synthetic data base allows the economical generation of images that represent scenarios from which it is difficult or impossible to obtain real data. Furthermore, synthetic imagery allows direct control of image parameters, such as target signal-to-noise ratio, which aids ATR algorithm evaluation. This paper describes Texas Instruments' (TI's) Synthetic Image Generation for Automatic Target Recognizer Evaluation (SIGNATRE) system.
