The Advanced Technology Laboratories ATL of RCA has undertaken the task of developing sophisticated algorithms for autonomous target acquisition and tracking. When this contract was awarded, the investigators had already demonstrated in a simulation testbed that a statistical segmentation algorithm using multiple features for classification performs well on low resolution infared images of tanks. This contract was used to investigate improvements to the tracker system, and evolve towards a real-time hardware implementation. The goals of the original contract were met within two years of the contract award. At that time, several analytical and experimental investigations had been conducted. The tracker simulator had gone through several revisions, as new concepts were invented and tested. A report describing many of the facets of the statistical tracking system that were worked out by this contract is attached as an appendix. Originator-supplied keywords include Target Acquistion, Target Tracking, Algorithms, COmputerized Simulation Image Processing.
