Since there is no generally applicable definition of the term aided target recognition ATR, the author takes as a working definition the task of mapping scenes to representations and extracting information concerning specific elements from these representations, such as the physical attributes of objects in the scenes. This report presents a survey of a number of useful linear and nonlinear image processing techniques for aided target recognition tasks. A summary of the current progress with both digital and optical implementations of these techniques is also given.
