Abstract
The development and evaluation of multi-source, multi-spectral, all-aspect airborne target identification algorithms has been proven to be cumbersome as well as disjointed. The algorithm development capability under this testbed concept encompasses model-based reasoning, information fusion, airborne target identification, and target/sensor phenomenology analysis. The evaluation capability assembles multiple sensor and target types coupled with all aspect viewing in an operationally representative air-to-air environment. The importance of developing better techniques for establishing positive target identification for beyond visual ranges has increased in tactical importance, as a result of the Persian Gulf War. In addition to supporting the evaluation of algorithms and associated sensors, this testbed will support on- going R&D in the Air-To-Air Non-Cooperative Target Recognition (NCTR) arena.
