Abstract:

Today's battlefield environment contains a large number of sensors onboard multiple platforms. This set of sensors types includes SAR, EO/IR, GMTI, AMTI, HSI, MSI, and video and for each sensor type there may be multiple modalities. Of particular interest for this topic, is the use of GMTI and EO/IR sensors collocated on a single platform. The challenge arises when one must determine how to optimally use the widely different capabilities of these two sensors. The GMTI sensor generates a wide field-of-view of the battlefield, but is not able to accurately identify targets. On the other hand, the EO/IR sensor provides increased identification capability but is limited in their field of view. The goal of this effort is to develop a sensor management capability that is able to prioritize among the set of targets within a battlefield environment so as to maximize the benefit of the data products obtained from these sensor systems.
