Advanced Automated Threat Recognition in Security Imaging
R4-B3

Develop automated target recognition (ATR) algorithms for detection of unusual, anomalous areas for different image modalities in explosives detection

Relevance to the Homeland Security Enterprise

  • ATR algorithms for Advanced Imaging Technologies such as x-ray backscatter, mm wave imaging
  • ATR for check point, and checked luggage
  • Standoff detection of concealed explosives
  • Needs low probability of false alarm, high probability of detection
