14 June 1996 Characterization of ATR performance evaluation
Author Affiliations +
This paper is concerned with the development of a framework in which reasonable bounds and approximations for the performance of automatic target recognition (ATR) systems may be obtained. The relative merits of evaluations focusing on various components of ATR systems are discussed. Techniques in which structural knowledge of the radar target (embodied in phenomenological and pattern models) might be used to characterize representations in pattern space, and distances in decision space are described. Preliminary results corresponding to various assumptions regarding structural constraints are presented.
