Research Institution

The U.S. Navy requires a tactical decision aid to integrate information from IUSS with information from tactical forces. This system must include resource allocation/optimization, communications management, all-source data fusion battle management, advanced graphics, and a tactical metric. Some of these functions are performed manually while others involving close coordination with tactical forces are genrally not a substantial part of current IUSS responsibilities. Some automation will be added with FDS and SDS. However, these systems do not fully manage active/passive interoperability of even the available surveillance sensors and the information from these systems will still not be tightly coupled with tactical ASW information. ORINCON's proposed research will carry out a requirements definition and a high-level and detailed design for this tactical decision aid, building on our DARPA Acoustic Warfare Decision Support System experience. As a result of these efforts, substantial innovative technology can be brought to bear on the design of this decision aid. Our Phase II efforts will involve implementation of the Phase I design to demonstrate a proof-of-concept system. ORINCON is uniquely qualified to perform this research because of our substantial DARPA expert system experience, our extensive knowledge of both active and passive IUSS systems, and our tracking and data fusion efforts as part of a number of tactical ASW programs.
