We conducted an experiment to determine if the unprocessed output of a developmental sensor system could be used to identify military targets. We used a computer to manipulate images of tanks and helicopters to produce data files similar to the expected output of the developmental sensor system. Graphing the data files and comparing the graphs for similarities gave us the basis for judging that the output of the system could be used by an automatic pattern recognition device to correctly recognize military targets. This development could yield advances in automatic target recognition, target acquisition, and battle damage assessment.
