Abstract:

VIGILANTE is an ultrafast smart sensor testbed for generic Automatic Target Recognition ATR applications with a series of capability demonstration focussed on cruise missile defense CMD. VIGILANTEs sensorprocessor architecture is based on next-generation UVvisibleIR sensors and a tera-operations per second sugar-cube processor, as well as supporting airborne vehicle. Excellent results of efficient ATR methodologies that use an eigenvectorsneural network combination and feature-based precision tracking have been demonstrated in the laboratory environment.
