Title: SysTRAAK Multiple Hypothesis Track Correlation
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: HQ0006-10-C-7412
Award Amount: $99,852.00


The objective of this proposal is to develop a Multiple Hypothesis Tracking (MHT) algorithm that will operate in real-time while receiving detection reports in ascent phase from a variety of disparate sensors. ExoAnalytic Solutions has developed mature tools, including the CCIR3 CSO algorithm and the SysTRAAK MHT tracking and discrimination simulation that will form the starting point for this proposal. CCIR3 is a TRL 6 CSO mitigation algorithm that is currently undergoing insertion into the SM-3 Block IIA testbed at Raytheon. The SysTRAAK end-to-end tracking and discrimination simulation utilizes the CCIR3 CSO algorithm to study multiple platform BMDS tracking, handover and discrimination performance. Using a focal plane detection algorithm like CCIR3 is critical for tracking and correlation studies in ascent phase where the CSO condition is a major issue to be resolved. The SysTRAAK simulation operates on detection reports containing metric data from disparate sensors (DSP, STSS, PTSS, airborne IR, interceptors, radar, others). It carries multiple hypotheses to account for potential target deployment, maneuvers, and for the "ghosting" that arises when targets and sensors nearly lie in a plane. This proposal will investigate utilizing radiometric information to enhance the probability of correct handover with demonstrations focused on ascent phase intercept.
