Abstract:

THE REQUIREMENTS OF SPACE WARFARE DICTATE THE NEED FOR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES TO SOLVE COMPLEX SPACE OBJECT CLASSIFICATION PROBLEMS. ADVANCES IN COMPUTING SPEED AND EXISTING SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY ALONE ARE UNLIKELY TO RESULT IN A REAL-TIME DISCRIMINATION SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF MEETING THE COMPLEX REQUIREMENTS OF SPACE OBJECT SURVEILLANCE AND CLASSIFICATION. RATHER, AN ALTERNATIVE METHODOLOGY SUCH AS ABDUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY, A NEW TECHNOLOGY PRESENTED IN THIS PROPOSAL, IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. ABDUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY IS AN INNOVATIVE POTENTIAL SOLUTION TO THE SPACE OBJECT CLASSIFICATION CHALLENGE BECAUSE IT ALLOWS COMPUTER SOFTWARE TO REASON EFFECTIVELY UNDER UNCERTAINTY, LEARN, AND RESOLVE COMBINATIONAL EXPLOSIONS OF POSSIBLE SITUATIONS IN A COMPACT AND RAPIDLY EXECUTABLE FORM. THESE CAPABILITIES WILL INCREASE THE PROBABILITY OF SUCCESSFULLY DEVELOPING A PRACTICAL AND DEPENDABLE SYSTEM, REDUCE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT COSTS SUBSTANTIALLY, AND ENHANCE SYSTEM CAPABILITIES.
