Abstract:

The central focus of this proposal is on building an automatic target recognition system for identifyi-ng relocatable targets by integrating information from multiple sensors using a synergistic framework of neural networks and exprt systems. This frairework is ideally suited for 3..ricorporating human expertise of both perceptual and qualitative reasoning processes . From our prior experience in this area (NADC N62269-90-C-0567), we find the key to an efficient solutLon lies in using a composite architecture conbining an e)q.rt system with a hybrid neural subsystem. We propose a th ^ elevel processing system for identi- fying the relocatable targets. Th- first level of %is system addresses issues related to data representa^Lon and registration ljetween sources . The second level achieves feature extraction and parbLal recognition results using neural networks. Die third level consists of a decision maki-ng expert system wLth fuzzy logic reasonlng to achieve a collectLve decision from the multi.ple sources using an object-oriented representaLLon of the target.
