Present methods of quantifying the performance of ATR algorithms involves the use of large video datasets that must be truthed by hand, frame-by-frame, requiring vast amounts of time. To reduce this cost, we have developed an application that significantly reduces the cost by only requiring the operator to grade a relatively sparse number of data "(More)
We describe a new class of spherically symmetric, high degree of freedom robots called " platonic beasts. " A robot in this family is kinematically equivalent to a symmetric polyhedron, such as one of the Platonic solids, with identical multipurpose limbs attached to its vertices. The symmetry and regularity of the design have several advantages including(More)
Automatic target detection (ATD) systems process imagery to detect and locate targets in imagery in support of a variety of military missions. Accurate prediction of ATD performance would assist in system design and trade studies , collection management, and mission planning. A need exists for ATD performance prediction based exclusively on information(More)
