Abstract
A sensor suite has been developed for the task of ground target acquisition that includes human perception in the sensor fusion optimization. The presentation to the operator has been chosen to be visual imagery of the target in its background clutter (this maximizes quantity of information presentable to the operator, while quality is determined by sensor capabilities and pre-display processing). The resulting composite display is natural and intuitive, increasing the amount of data that can be displayed and easily comprehended without operator confusion. Three spectral bands for imaging sensors have been selected for this suite: near-IR (.9-1.5 micrometers ), mid-IR (3-5 micrometers ), and far-IR (8-12 micrometers ). These are highly mature technologies, each with quality imaging capability and unique target signature exploitation capabilities.
