The objective of this proposal is to develop design and performance information needed for the construction of a "brass board" radom board and signal processor operating in the I.R. radiation region -(long wave length as well as of 2 to 6 microns). Radom signal proceeding techniques possess the potential for creating a quantum jump in capabilities for locating and identifying I.R. emitting targets or threats hidden in clutter (background). For example, radom signal processing applied to the I.R. region provides the capability to separate a weak target's or a threat's I.R. signal from the stronger I.R. cutter (background) even when the frequence spectrums of the clutter (background) and target (threat) signals overlap. Random signal processing techniques are well founded in theory.
