One ofthe most critical problems in automatic target recognition (ATR) systems is multiscenario adaptation. Today's ATR systems perform unpredictably, i.e., perform well in certain scenarios and poorly in others. Unless ATR systems can be made adaptable, their utility in battlefield missions remains questionable. We have developed a novel method called knowledge- and model-based algorithm adaptation (KMBAA). KMBAA automatically adapts the ATR parameters as the scenario changes so that ATR can maintain optimum performance. The KMBAA approach has been tested with a nonreal-time ATR simulation system and has demonstrated a significant improvement in detection, false alarm rate reduction, and segmentation accuracy performance.
