Abstract
AN ENEMY WILL ATTEMPT TO COVER, CONCEAL AND APPLY DECEPTION TO PREVENT DISCOVERY OF HIS CAPABILITIES, ACTIVITIES AND INTENTIONS. THE PROBLEM OF COUNTERING CC&D IS ANALOGOUS TO SEEING THROUGH THE SLEIGHT-OF-HAND TRICKS OF A MAGICIAN. IF ONLY ONE SENSOR WITH ONE PERSPECTIVE IS USED TO OBSERVE AN OBJECT OR ACTION, THE OPTIONS OF A DECEIVER ARE MANY AND SIMPLE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO ANALYZE VARIED TECHNIQUES FOR COUNTERING CC&D ON THE BATTLEFIELD. THE THRUST OF THE EFFORT WILL BE TO ESTABLISH THE ADVANTAGES OF MULTISENSOR, INTERACTIVE RECONNAISSANCE AGAINST SPECIFIC BATTLEFIELD TARGETS. THE PROJECT WILL SELECT SEVERAL CRITICAL TARGETS, ANALYZE THEIR SIGNATURES, DETERMINE THE MOST EFFECTIVE SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES AGAINST EACH SIGNATURE, AND ASSESS COLLECTION MANAGEMENT/ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES WHICH CAN DETECT CC&D. ANALYSIS WILL INCLUDE THE MERITS OF SAR, AND TECHNIQUES SUCH AS CHANGE DETECTION, IMAGE UNDERSTANDING AND SIGNAL/PATTERN RECOGNITION.
