Abstract:

The proliferation of inexpensive radar and communication devices has complicated the target identification problem for modern submarine EW systems. Arete Associates and ARL Penn State propose real-time software called Submarine Multi-Sensor Automatic Target Recognition (SMS-ATR). The approach leverages existing periscope imaging ATR algorithms to allow rapid integration of EW intercept data for robust multi-sensor classification.
