The technology developed under this Phase II SBIR provides an automated collaborative data exchange capability to realize significant reduction in the time it takes for an operator to promote a contact, which requires high confidence contact validation. In particular, this technology will focus on automating data exchange between platforms in order to more rapidly: (1) produce a cross-fix solution from multi-platform passive observations, (2) resolve ambiguous bearing observations using multi-platform data and (3) assign classification and threat to declared contacts. While these are the primary thrusts, this Phase II effort will explore and identify other operator use cases where automated data exchange may further improve multi-platform ASW operations. With previous data exchange research focused on intelligent data "throttling" between platforms (data push), the proposed effort will employ a bi-directional data pull and data push paradigm for effective targeted data requests/responses between platforms.
