Davidson Technolotgies Inc. has proposed a task to develop and assess an algorithm to provide discrimination of encapsulating balloons, a serious potential countermeasures. Available literature suggests that precommit discrimination is not feasible due to the long range from sensor to target and limited angle resolution of precommit sensors, where this techniques will examine post-commit discrimination where range to target is shorter and resolution of threat objects can be achieved. This technique can be used to identify which balloon contains the hidden RV and further, we believe, can help locate where the RV is inside the balloon.
