In this SBIR, deciBel Research proposes an innovative debris mitigation approach that includes moving bulk filtering to post-detection processing where it can help verify the classification of lethal object(s) and reduce leakage rather than increase it. Most importantly, we propose collecting the data of interest on deployment first, and then undertaking the detection and classification process in batch mode before individual tracks have been initiated. This approach will avoid tracker-related issues caused by high-density debris and clutter object(s) simultaneously. Becuase the necessary data will have already been recorded, the detection and classification can be reviewed, repeated, and modified as necessary to prevent leakage; all while the missile is still in flight.
