Abstract:

Automatic target recognition ATR is made difficult by the variety of conditions under which an ATR system may be required to operate. Because the number of operations required to execute a particular ATR algorithm can vary greatly from one scenario to another, a fixed hardware and software architecture usually will not be able to execute a given ATR algorithm in all required scenarios within some given real-time constraints. A solution to this problem is to use a scalable architecture. The hardware and software of such an architecture can easily be scaled to meet the processing requirements of a particular scenario. This report describes a scalable architecture system that we developed that implements a real-time ATR algorithm.
