US Army seeks development of “psychologically inspired object recognition system”

From Wired News:

The Army recently put out a call for a “psychologically inspired object recognition system… Such a system would be extremely beneficial for robotic control/intelligence and would allow for an exponential expansion of robotic capabilities and intelligence.”

If it all works out as planned, the Army thinks the new robo-vision ‘ware could be used in “robotic security systems, autonomous factory systems and robotic health care systems,” as well.

I don’t know much about object recognition research but I wonder why this needs to be “psychologically inspired?”  There are plenty to non-biologically based perception systems that accomplish the same objectives as systems that set out to mimic human perception.
