Title: Dynamic Multisensor Exploitation (DYME)
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: W31P4Q-08-C-0445
Award Amount: $98,947.00
 

Abstract:

The goal of the TSC/GTRI program is to enhance expeditionary (or other small force) ISR capabilities by providing: 1) improved performance for an aggregate of existing or near-term airborne sensors, mobile ground sensors and UGS, 2) more efficient use of data links, and 3) target discovery algorithms that are designed for the available exploitation equipment. The multiple sensor exploitation architectures and report-level fusion techniques will be compatible with the sensor and exploitation equipment capabilities. The techniques and algorithms will consider environmental conditions including terrain and foliage obscuration, weather, enemy tactics and CC&D measures. The DYME objectives will be achieved through: 1) a combination of sensor enhancements that can improve the aggregate performance when used in a sequential mode or as a sensor network, and that would have minimal hardware impact on the sensor hardware, 2) enhanced sensor siting and mission planning tools and techniques that consider the sequential use of individual sensors and the aggregate performance to improve the detection, location, identification and tracking of insurgent forces, and 3) the development of techniques that allow the rapid transmission, evaluation and dissemination of the key information for supporting multi-sensor data correlation, situation analysis and providing actionable information to the soldier.
