Advanced Automated Threat Recognition in Security Imaging

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
