Award Amount: $98,939.00


In this effort we will design and demonstrate the benefits of an integrated fusion system (IFS) for continuous monitoring of targets. The proposed IFS architecture will ensure that all available sensor data is used to generate a consistent picture of target tracks and activities, and it will enable processing of data from each sensor to be cued based on all available information. We will specify components of the architecture for which algorithms already exist, and we will describe our plans to demonstrate benefits of IFS to potential users. We will also specify our plans to generate a top-level software design for IFS, and how this design can be mapped onto an operational system (e.g., Army CGS). Our expertise, built over the last two decades, in the areas of multi-target tracking, intel and image fusion, and force pattern analysis will ensure that we can achieve the above objectives. Our current participation in major DARPA battlespace awareness programs will provide cross-fertilization of ideas amongst these programs and avoid duplication of efforts. Finally, our ongoing effort for Motorola to integrate our target tracking algorithm into CGS will ensure that our design supports user information and interface requirements.
