"GMTI radars including Joint STARS, U-2S and Global Hawk provide abundant data on ground vehicles that can be exploited for military traffic analysis. AFRL/Rome has developed the web-based MTI exploitation (MTIX) system to catalog GMTI data, kinematictracks, SAR imagery and provide broad functionality that includes target displays, user-specified sentinel alerts and mission planning tools. MTIX can be further improved through data mining. TSC is teamed with traffic engineers from the WashingtonTransportation Center to apply the innovative methods and automated analysis tools that they have developed for civilian applications to such GMTI database mining. In Phase 1, our team will review current MTIX capabilities and recommend additional datacollection, analysis and display functionality that can benefit military users. TSC will develop enhancements to improve military target tracking in dense vehicle and urban environments and to support intelligent preparation of the battlefield in suchareas. To commercialize the enhanced MTIX product in Phase 2, new functionality can be developed including passenger car versus truck discrimination, extraction of traffic statistics to support FHWA reporting requirements and road corridor analysesperformed by DOT agencies. Our team will expand the data mining capabilities and implement them in MTIX client software for use in Air Force/Army radar ground stations. Applying civilian traffic analys
