Abstract
SUSQUEHANNA RESOURCES AND ENVIRONMENT, INC. (SR&E) WILL DEVELOP A PROTOTYPE INTELLIGENT GUNNER DECISION AID SYSTEM FOR LABORATORY DEMONSTRATION AND VALIDATION WITH ANTONOMOUS TARGET DETECTION, IDENTIFICATION, AND TRACKING; AND INTELLIGENT DISPLAYS FOR MAKING CORRECT AND TIMELY FIRE CONTROL DECISIONS. SR&E CAN MAKE THE BEST OFFER BECAUSE IT HAS THE TECHNOLOGY TO PERFORM AUTOMATED SCENE SEGMENTATION AND DESCRIPTION ON WHICH AUTOMATIC TARGET RECOGNITION (ATR) IS BASED; WHEREAD, OTHERS DO NOT. THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SR&E TECHNOLOGIES HAVE BEEN EVALUATED AND PROVEN. THE FIVE PHASE I OBJECTIVES ARE: TO DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE DATA BASE FOR THE EXPERIMENTS; TO GENERATE AN TARGET IDENTIFICATION LIBRARY FOR A LIMITED CLASS OF TARGETS; TO GENERATE FEATURE DESCRIPTORS WITH FLIR IMAGE DATA; TO PERFORM TARGET IDENTIFICATION; AND TO DEMONSTRATE THE RESULTS AND RECOMMEND SPECIFICATIONS FOR A PROTOTYPE ATR SYSTEM. THE EXPERIMENTS ARE FOCUSSED ON THE DISCRIMINATION BETWEEN TRACKED AND WHEELED VEHICLES ON ONE LEVEL, AND BETWEEN TANKS AND APC'S ON ANOTHER. PHASED WORK PLAN FOLLOWS ESSENTIALLY THE ORDER OF THE OBJECTIVES. THE DEMONSTRATIONS WILL BE CONDUCTED AT SR&E AND ARDEC WITH A HYBRID ATR SYSTEM: FRONT-END DIGITAL AND REAR-END SYMBOLIC PROCESSORS.
