Abstract
The team of 3 Phoenix, Inc. and Northrop Grumman Corporation propose to develop and evaluate technology that provides a substantial performance improvement to the problem of clutter discrimination. The team describes algorithms proposed to achieve substantial performance improvement. The proposed technology includes algorithms to perform detection of targets in heavy clutter, algorithms for extracting novel physics-based target features, and classifier technology for discriminating sea spikes from periscopes. Under Phase I, we propose to implement the algorithms and use recorded radar data to evaluate the technology. We propose to analyze the feasibility of implementation of the technology in software.
