Abstract
WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP THE TOOLS FOR THE DETERMINATION AND EVALUATION OF KNOWLEDGE BASES FOR INFRARED IMAGE INTERPRETATION SYSTEMS. OUR APPROACH IS BASED ON A THREE DIMENSIONAL MODELING SYSTEM WHICH WILL CONTAIN PHENOMENOLOGY FROM WHICH IMAGES CAN BE SYNTHESIZED. THE THREE DIMENSIONAL MODEL WILL BE DEVELOPED TO THE LEVEL OF DETAIL WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH THE SPATIAL AND THERMAL RESOLUTIONS OF THE OUTPUT IMAGES THAT ARE REQUIRED BY THE INTERPRETATION SYSTEM. THE MODEL DEVELOPMENT AT THE APPROPRIATE LEVEL OF DETAIL WILL FACILITATE RAPID IMAGE GENERATION. THE 3-D MODELS AND IR PHENOMENOLOGY CAN BE VALIDATED AND CALIBRATED AGAINST REAL FIELD IMAGES, THEN USED TO GENERATE DATA BASES OF IMAGES TO TEST HYPOTHESIS ON INTERPRETATION RULES IN ALL CONTEXTS AT ANY ASPECT OR RANGE. THE GENERATION SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO GENERATE BOTH LEARNING SETS TO AID IN RULE DETERMINATION AND TEST SETS TO TEST RULES FOR THEIR CONSISTENCY AGAINST A VARIETY OF CONTEXTS AT VARIOUS RESOLUTIONS.
