The integration of a Relational Database and Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) systems is presented. The ability to select ideal target references from a comprehensive relational database for the creation of filters will enhance the ability of an ATR system to detect and classify targets. The process of identification and classification of targets to be utilized in the creation of filters, design and implementation of the relational database, construction of tools to populate the database through extraction of current references, and creation of example code illustrating the ability to integrate existing ATR systems with the designed database are presented and discussed.
