The article offers information on an Automatic Threat Assessment (ATA) refers as Identify Friend or Foe (IFF). It mentions that ATA is capable in recognizing several types of alarms developed by friendly assets including nuisance alarm, intrusion alarm and false alarm. It also informs that ATA is the combination of sensors that would reduce the security operator workload and enhanced the situational awareness.
