This research will focus on improving the situational awareness of AWACS operators to enhance mission performance through the introduction of ation processing techniques that relate contact data to tactical situations described at a higher level. The basic approaches are to model competing hypotheses of track behavior at the level of tactical intent, and then to create motion and location track trajectories that correspond to those hypotheses. The algorithms then compare detections and non-detections to these models and recompute the relative likelihoods of the various trajectories. These trajectory likelihoods can then be used to reassess the likelihoods of the tactical intentions. Phase I will investigate the requirements by direct contact with AWACS operators and design a set of demonstrations for Phase II prototype installation at the Boeing AWACS Simulator Facility.
