Abstract:

Highly-accurate detection, tracking, and identification of dim missile defense targets poses a significant challenge, due to scene clutter, finite sensor resolution, and nonlinearities in the target dynamics and sensor measurement models. Toyon proposes to use optical mathematical methods to design algorithms which provide significant improvements in the ability to find, fix, track, and identify missile defense targets of interest under the full range of real world operating conditions and sensor limitations. Toyon proposes to clearly demonstrate significant performance improvements using the developed algorithms and software, for highly-stressing datasets. It is expected that completion of this research and development, followed by commercialization, will provide added value for future SBIRS-like (Space Based Infrared Satellite), STSS-like (Space Tracking and Surveillance System), and SBSS-like (Space Based Space Surveillance) systems.
