Abstract
TSC proposes to develop a software algorithm for improving the detection, tracking, and discrimination of threat objects in the presence of a dense environment of debris. Debris of the type to be addressed in the proposed work can rapidly increase the radar''s track load to the point where tracks must be dropped. The proposed algorithm obviates the need to track all of the debris objects, thereby enabling the radar to devote track resources to objects more likely to be the lethal threat and improving the probability of an early intercept during the ascent phase of the threat trajectory.
