Abstract:

In order to counter emerging threats from the Middle East and Southeast Asia, the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is acquiring new sensor (e.g. AN/TPY-2 and PTSS) and weapon technology (SM-3). As these new technologies becomes fielded, the BMDS's Command, Control Battle Management and Communication (C2BMC) component must be able to correlate objects between multiple sensors. Inherent in this multi-sensor data fusion problem are issues related to differences in resolution, phenomenology, and viewing geometry. To addresses these technical challenges, ExoAnalytic proposes to develop a RF/EO Track Correlation and Characterization suite (RETC2) , which will perform target characterization for uses in feature aided track correlation and can adapt the techniques used depending on the spatial separation of objects and resolution of observing sensors. The objective of RETC2 is to develop technology for the BMDS that will enable fusion of sensor data to provide persistent system tracking which leads to effective discrimination and an engagement that maximizes probability of kill. RETC2's technical approach will emphasize diversity in sensor resolution, viewing geometry and phenomenology as a means to providing accurate, timely tracking features for correlation and target characterization.
