The development of efficient algorithms to process laser radar returns is required by the dramatic increases in capabilities of laser radar hardware. Freestyle Technologies, Inc. will develop and demonstrate three innovative algorithms that will characterize clutter, aid in the detection of occluded targets, and provide aimpoint selection. In addition, Freestyle Technologies, Inc. will design and test a new topcoat for vehicles that will form the basis of a semi-cooperative identification Friend or Foe (Semi-IFF).
