"The technical objectives of Phase I are to: (1) demonstrate potential EKV TOM (Target Object Map) metric and IR/visible discriminants available from simultaneously collected multi-spectral data, and (2) demonstrate the feasibility of improving TOM metricand discrimination algorithm performance attributable to the simultaneous collection of GBR-P and AMOS AEOS IR and visible observations.Ryan Associates proposes to use simulated IFT-8 target complex IR observations in combination with actual GBR-P collected data to demonstrate potential metric improvements to the TOM, as well as improvements in IR discriminants in the EKV sensor bands. Weare doing this by using the Ryan Associates SIMTAS (Space-based Infrared Missile Track Analysis Software) tool to combine the metric observations potentially available from the two sensors. We propose to use our EROS (Emitted and Reflected OpticalSignatures) tool to simulate the IFT-8 target complex signature histories available during the data overlap period to provide in-band thermal features potentially available to the EKV sensor during intercept homing. We anticipate that the combined EO angle information and the radar range information will provide improved metric position data in the EKV TOMs, that the LWIR signature and feature data provided by the EO sensor will assist discrimination when integratedwith the GBR-P data, and that the end user of the modified SIMTAS software, data fusion algori
