Abstract : The report is prepared in the form of a User's Manual for personnel engaged in the operation of the RADC SCORE (Spectral Combinations for Reconnaissance Exploitation) system. The SCORE program has as its major objective the development and implementation of a multispectral analysis system to identify military targets based on their spectral signature. The specific objective of the subjective contract was the development and implementation of applications software in the form of preprocessing and analysis routines for use in extracting spectral signatures (features) from multispectral data. The spectral features are intended for use on the On-Line Pattern and Recognition System (OLPARS) in the design of enhancement/recognition logic for targets of interest. Parallel to the development of the SCORE program has been the development of the Image Feature Extraction System (IFES). IFES is being implemented as a research tool for use in extracting information from a single image based on the spatial characteristics of targets. SCORE and IFES reside within one software framework in the PDP-11/20/SDS-800 system. (Modified author abstract)
