Electro-Optical (EO) Sensor Management
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The DAC Teams proposes to extend to the Space Situational Awareness domain existing sensor resource management algorithms that we have developed and will be deployed on the operational Ballistic Missile Defense System in 2006. Our current algorithms accept warfighter inputs defining the relative value of possible targets, explicitly accounts for physical properties of the sensors (including field of view, finite slew times, and, optionally, orbital motion), and solves a global optimization problem to provide the greatest possible value to the warfighter over a given time horizon. The DAC algorithms are validated for RF sensors, but would modularly accept EO/IR sensor models, which we propose to build under this SBIR. We therefore propose to build a Full Spectrum (EO/IR/RF) Sensor Resource Manger (FS-SRM). The DAC Team is comprised of experts in sensor resource management algorithms and EO sensors. It also boasts experience both in the Missile Defense domain and Air Force operations.
