Abstract
HUMAN EXPERTS IN THE FIELD OF RADAR CROSS SECTION (RCS) DATA ANALYSIS ARE SCARCE AND IN HIGH DEMAND, AS ARE THE FACILITIES REQUIRED TO MAKE SUCH MEASUREMENTS. IN ADDITION, THESE FACILITIES ARE VERY EXPENSIVE TO OPERATE AND MANY ARE LOCATED IN REMOTE AREAS WHERE IT MAY BE IMPRACTICAL TO POST A FULL-TIME HUMAN EXPERT. A MEANS OF AUTOMATICALLY VALIDATING THE TEST DATA COLLECTED AT THESE FACILITIES WOULD: 1) REDUCE RE-TEST TIME AND COST, AND 2) RELIVE HUMAN EXPERTS OF THIS TASK. AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE FEASIBILITY OF APPLYING "ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE", AND IN PARTICULAR "EXPERT SYSTEM", TECHNOLOGY TO BUILD SUCH A CAPABILITY IS PROPOSED.
