This paper presents performance results for a new, fully polarimetric SAR ATR algorithm suite. The new algorithm suite is a modified version of the current Lincoln Laboratory baseline ATR algorithm suite. The detection (plus clustering) portion of the ATR system remains unchanged; however, the new ATR system uses a larger, optimized feature set for discrimination, and a multi- layered scheme for target classification. The new ATR system was found to provide improved performance over the baseline system when tested on a large data set of tactical targets (both bare and netted) and a large set of ground clutter (which contained numerous man-made objects).
