In this paper, we present a method for reducing the computation time of Automated Target Recognition (ATR) algorithms through the utilization of the parallel computation on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). A selected multistage ATR algorithm is refounded to encourage efficient execution on the GPU. Such refounding includes parallel reimplementations of optical correlation, Feature Extraction, Classification and Correlation using NVIDIA's CUDA programming model. This method is shown to significantly reduce computation time of the selected ATR algorithms allowing the potential for further complexity and real-time applications.
