3-D TARGET OBJECT MAP (TOM) ALGORITHM DEVELOPMENT FOR ENHANCED THREAT IDENTIFICATION
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
"East West Enterprises Inc., (EWE) proposes to develop a Target Object Map (TOM ) algorithm development environment with new and advanced concept TOM algorithms . The environment will be an intelligent TOM processor based upon an open architecturedesign to allow for performing existing weapon system trade/feasibility studies and objective system implemention evaluations. Two advanced concepts are investigated which will enhance the current two dimensional TOM process. The first advanced conceptwill include the use of an on-board Ladar in existing sensor systems for missile defense applications to allow for a three dimensional mapping utilizing the range data from the Ladar and the Radar. The second advanced concept will utilize the combinationof the probability of lethality from the TOM process (hand over from the Radar discrimination process) with the probability of lethality from the radiometric seeker discrimination data to enhance the lethal target designation process. Currently, work donein this field has utilized a correlation process of extracted feature data from both the seeker and radar, but not a combined probability likelyhood resultant from the TOM process with the IR discrimination process, which is proposed here. Performanceimprovements resulting from the TOM advanced concept algorithms will be quantified. The Proposed system will have numerous Missile Defense Applications for systems/programs such as Hercules,
