Abstract
Currently, there is not a good model of the sensitivity relationship between physics parameters (including the background clutter model) and the resulting synthetic signature, nor are tools currently available that could apply such sensitivity information to adapt a database of synthetic signatures to various ATR applications. In this proposal we shall outline a technical approach to model the physics to signature sensitivity and present a set of methods to utilize this information to feed into ATR algorithms by: 1.Postprocessing the signature pixels to better represent the background reflectivity 2.Providing a statistical description for each pixel in the target image, based on ground clutter effects 3.Extending the statistical description to include other phenomenology assumptions.
