Abstract:

AGARD Project 2000 is examining the match of military requirements and technology for use about the end of this century. As a part of this effort, Study Group no. 3 headed by John Entzminger of RADC, is undertaking a dialog on target detection, location and recognition between representatives of the operational military users and sensor technologies. The objective is to consider military needs and prospective technological capabilities to jointly speculate on the most valuable system forms for development. This paper was prepared to aid the discussion and attempts to summarize the user aspects of current sensor technology, suggest some directions in which sensor capabilities might be developed, and point out the capabilities and limitations of the generic sensor forms.
