Abstract

A challenging problem in digital signal and image processing is that of automatic target recognition (ATR) and object classification. In defense operations in particular, rapid object discrimination is critical. While this problem has been studied extensively, it remains a challenge, due to the complex and time-intensive methods of typical approaches. This study involved constructing features from the range profile signal returns, identifying the "best" set of features and performing ATR. Confusion matrices are presented for the targets of interest for simulation. Although the selection techniques for the features were not optimized, the results for ATR are promising.
