Abstract
THE TECHNOLOGY OF INFRARED AND OPTICAL SURVEILLANCE IS AN EXCELLENT CANDIDATE FOR PARALLEL PROCESSING. INCREASED SENSITIVITY AND GREATER COVERAGE HAS GREATLY MAGNIFIED THE OVERALL PROCESSING PROBLEM. TRA WITH MRJ PROPOSES TO UTILIZE A STATE-OF-THE-ART PARALLEL PROCESSOR, THE CONNECTION MACHINE, TO DEVELOP AND EVALUATE ALGORITHMS FOR TARGET DETECTION. TRA AND MRJ FEEL THAT THE APPLICATION OF PARALLEL PROCESSING TO THIS PROBLEM WILL OPEN NEW AVENUES FOR SOLVING THIS COMPUTATIONALLY INTENSE PROBLEM. ALGORITHMS WILL BE EVALUATED ON HICAMP DATA ON THE CONNECTION MACHINE AND COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL PROCESSOR IMPLEMENTATIONS.
