Requirements on ATR (Automatic Target Recognition) performance are becoming more stringent. ATR systems are expected to detect, classify, recognize, and even identify, threats with greater accuracy and in less time over an increasing range of scenarios. Similarly, operators in manned combat systems also suffer from pressures for better target acquisition performance in the face of an overwhelming workload. In response, one of the more pressing questions regarding future combat systems is whether or not a symbiotic relationship between a human operator and ATR process can exceed the target acquisition performance of either, and simultaneously reduce the total workload on the human operator. Creative Optics, Inc. is proposing to define a strategy for Man-ATR interaction that meets these needs.
