Abstract
To address current challenges faced with synthetic database generation and utilization we are proposing a tighter coupling between ATR algorithms and the signature validation/formation process. This coupling consists of two key objectives. First, we utilize the discriminant information to selectively weight only those errors which contributed to a misclassification. Second, we perform analysis directly on the 3D scattering centers to predict the separability of particular classes prior to the implementation of an ATR for varying levels of target fidelity.
