Abstract:

A primary mission of Naval air assets is to detect and destroy enemy ground targets. In order to accomplish this mission, the weapon systems must be able to detect and classify potential targets to determine which are valid targets. Traditional combat identification has been performed using all weather sensors and processing algorithms designed specifically for such sensor data. Newer electro-optical (EO) sensors produce a very different type of data that does not lend itself to the traditional combat identification algorithms. Therefore, there is a need for new algorithms to perform combat identification within EO data. Cybernet proposes to leverage our existing pose determination system to create algorithms for performing combat identification of targets within EO sensor data at any orientation. The system uses feature data (typically object edge data) and a target database to determine the 3D position and orientation of the object and the object's identity. The system stores a very compressed representation of the target for comparison purposes. This allows target information to be shared easily of networked resources.
