Abstract
A current critical problem in Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) technology is the inability to effectively evaluate ATR systems performance and component algorithms. Beyond the problem of evaluating system performance, it is often impossible to determine why a system is performing poorly under certain circumstances. This is largely due to the relatively unsophisticated tools and methods currently employed to extract and analyze the vast quantities of data processed by such systems. The amount of time and effort dedicated to testing, evaluation, and refinement of complex ATR systems and their component algorithm is by far the longest stage in the life cycle of the development process. Adequate tools, techniques, standards, and groundtruthing are critically needed for effective diagnostics and evaluation of next generation ATR systems. In this paper, we present a thesis on the critical issues of ATR evaluation and potential solutions.
