Abstract: The goal of this effort is to develop and demonstrate prototype processing capabilities for a knowledge-based system to automatically extract and analyze linear features from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery. This effort constitutes Phase II funding through the Defense Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Program. Previous work examined the feasibility of and technology issues involved in the development of an automated linear feature extraction system. This final report documents this examination and the technologies involved in automating this image understanding task. In particular, it reports on a major software delivery containing an image processing algorithmic base, a "perceptual structures" manipulation package, a preliminary hypothesis management framework and an enhanced user interface.
