Wagner Associates, under a previous SBIR program, succeeded in developing and integrating multi-sensor integration algorithms that solve the problem of combining information from on-board sensors into a single tactical picture for E-3 AWACS. That software was subjected to a thorough test and evaluation in ESC's Fusion Evaluation Testbed. This new Phase I research will provide five important enhancements to the existing software. First, it will add processing for new sensors and off board link input to the basic algorithm. Second, it will implement an interim gridlock algorithm to permit registration of position, azimuth, and time latency from off board data sources. Third, it will implement a new and sophisticated passive tracking algorithm, to provide the ability to determine range accurately from passive sensors only. Fourth, it will provide interfaces to accept and respond to operator commands from the Air Force's prototype user system interface. And fifth, it will replace the current FORTRAN sensor level correlation algorithm with a newer version, in Ada.
