We show design and performance results for an Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS) Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) target classifier using infrared (IR) imagery. Our goal was to develop a basic ATR capability to separate human vs. animal vs. vehicle vs. non-target. Our current UGS video capability accurately detects tracks and transmits targetcentered long wave infrared and visible imagery to a base station. We demonstrate an ATR capability to classify and transmit only targets of interest to the user while excluding others. We describe the ATR development process which includes data collection, building a truthed dataset, feature development, classifier training and performance evaluation.
