Abstract:

In this project, Wagner Associates will develop a prototype Multi-hypothesis Active and Passive Data Fusion System (MAPDFS). MAPDFS will accurately fuse active data, such as Air Moving Target Indicator (AMTI) reports; with passive data, such as Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) reports. MAPDFS will rely on a sophisticated multiple hypothesis algorithm to allow the ambiguity inherent in contact association, especially when processing passive only detections, to resolve over time. MAPDFS will also use a Gaussian sum tracker to provide an accurate estimate of target location, even when active data is not available. In addition, MAPDFS will use a detailed model of ELINT reports when calculating association scores, thereby increasing the likelihood of obtaining and maintaining the correct associations. In this project we will also design scenarios and produce simulated data that will allow us to demonstrate the benefits of the accurate fused picture produced by MAPDFS.
