Abstract:

A target acquisition experiment was conducted using simulated synthetic aperture radar SAR and forward looking infrared FLIR imagery. Ground order of battle provided the target set. Confuser vehicles and decoys were also included in the stimuli. The current study explored the operational utility of using synchronized, multi-sensor images for the acquisition of pre-brief ground order of battle targets and specifically for distinguishing real targets from decoys. The rates of target Hits and False Alarms with a synthetic aperture radar SAR sensor alone were compared to the corresponding rates when both SAR and forward looking infrared FLIR sensors were employed sequentially.
