Abstract
Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) modes in surveillance radar have the potential to distinguish between small military and civilian threats that are in maneuvering amongst numerous commercial vessels in the littoral. This effort developes Automated Maritime Classification Aids (MCAs) that assist the radar operator's rapid and accurate classification of ships and small boats in the littoral are needed to relieve the operator's workload. In addition, these aids when extended and coupled with data and performance optimizing automated Resource Managers (RM) can increase the situational awareness by using the radar timeline more efficiently.
