Author Affiliations +
We present a method for deriving an automatic target recognition (ATR) system using geospatial features and a Data Model populated decision architecture in the form of a self-organizing knowledge base. The goal is to derive an ATR that recognizes targets it has seen before while minimizing false alarms (zero false alarms). We present an investigation of the performance of analytical Data Models as a sensor and data fusion process for automatic target recognition (ATR), and summarize results including on a 2 km background run where no false alarms were encountered.
