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)
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)
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)
