10 June 1996 Automatic detection and cueing for foliage-concealed targets
Author Affiliations +
Automated target detection and cueing (ATD/C) capabilities are being developed at Loral for the Radar Detection of Concealed Time Critical Targets (RADCON) contract with Wright Laboratory (WL). The ATD/C algorithms use calibrated, fully polarimetric UHF band synthetic-aperture radar data collected by the ERIM/NAWC P-3 radar. A brief overview of data collected for RADCON algorithm development and testing is presented. An outline of the development and evaluation of discriminants used in the context of a Bayesian Neural Network (BNN) detector algorithm is described. The BNN algorithm was demonstrated under a previous WL concealed target detection ATD/C program. These algorithms will be hosted on a near real-time COTS parallel processor as part of a FOPEN airborne system.
