Knowledge-Based Real-Time Change Detection, Target Image Tracking and Threat Assessment
This paper describes the overall hardware and software architecture of a knowledge-based change detection, target tracking and threat assessment system. It ultimately assigns threat level and threat scenario labels to the observed scene, based on time dependent target features or changes in the scene, as well as target maneuvers and target number. The aims are: reduced scene interpretation workload, shorter reaction time, reduced false-alarm rates, and simple adaptation to changing fields of view/sensors.
