Charles River Analytics received funding from the Air Force Research Lab to develop the Scoring, Truthing, and Registration Toolkit (START) for video analysis. START is a truthing system that addresses problems associated with evaluating ATR algorithms, which can be being time-consuming, tedious, and prone to error.
The Department of Defense’s Automatic Target Recognition efforts require toolkits such as START for assessing algorithm performance. As there is currently not a standard toolkit available, development costs are replicated every time a new contract or DoD program is developed. START offers a consistent, cost-effective approach to many fundamental elements of ATR evaluation.
