Research Institution

nou Systems, Inc. (nSI) and Modern Technology Solutions, Inc. (MTSI) propose an innovative approach for coordinating disparate missile defense assets to reduce system-level degradation due to challenging environments. Stressing scenes can cause sensors to become overwhelmed with detections, experience track churning, and fail to report a consistent set of firm tracks; overall system effectiveness may degrade due to the stressing scenes. The proposed approach to mitigating such degradation builds on nSIs Phase I research, Multi-Sensor Environmental Characterization, which formulated a System-Level Environment Characterization (SEC) inference engine to collect, detect, react, and make informed decisions across a diverse set of conditions. The Phase II effort will (i) build a prototype of SEC inference engine rule sets identified in Phase I, (ii) interface SEC with nSIs AnSERS engine, which calculates the value and likelihood of possible outcomes of each rule set, (iii) implement SEC within a robust simulation environment, and (iv) demonstrate SEC effectiveness against robust scenarios. Approved for Public Release 15-MDA-8169 (20 March 15)
