Near Real Time Data Fusion
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
This proposed Phase I research will prove basic concepts of a Near-Real-Time Data Fusion and Resource Allocation System, called OPEN EYES, which promises significant expansion of the range and effectiveness of today's sensors and weapons. This performance improvement will be achieved by real time processing of the threat picture using a high fidelity, nonlinear model. In this unified model, we will represent not only the positive information represented by the sensor contacts but the intelligence information received from all sources, negative information across sensor systems and across platforms, threat level information produced by simulated tactical projections, and real-time environmental information from fleet predictions. This improved picture will achieve real tactical advantage by rescheduling radar resources optimally in real time and by optimally assigned weapons systems to threat sectors.
