THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE OF PHASE I IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING INNDVITIVE STATISTICAL PATTERN RECOGNITION ALGORITHMS TO PERFORM THE TARGET IDENTIFICATION FUNCTION APPICABLE TO AUTOMATIC TARGET CUEING FOR FIBER OPTIC GUIDED MUNITIONS AND AUTONOMOUS TARGET ACQUISITION FOR SELF-CONTAINED GUIDED MUNITIONS THAT USE A LOAL MODE OF OPERATION. THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE IS TO DEMONSTRARE A PROBABILITY OF SUCCESSFUL TARGET RECOGNITION GREAT ENOUGH TO WARRANT THE USE OF THE ALGORITH WITH THE FOGM TARGET ACQUISITION DEVICE AS A MEANS OF REDUCING THE OPERATIONAL TIME LINE.
