Target recognition with an HRR signature can be viewed as consisting of pre-discriminant, discriminant, and post discriminant phases. The large variability and feature uncertainty of HRR signatures can, to a good extent, be handled by detailed modeling of underlying physical and electro-magnetic phenomena. However, some signature and feature variabilities pass through and continue to exist in the post-discriminant phase. A decision about the class of a signature must account for this residual uncertainty. In this paper we demonstrate an evidence theory based method for post- discriminant decision-making phase that minimizes the effects of the signature variability.
