Abstract
"Black River Systems Co., Inc. proposes to develop techniques for the simultaneous detection, track and geo-location of air and ground targets for a multi-mission radar. An integrated multi-phase development plan is presented which leverages Black RiverSystem's radar systems/analysis/simulation and development capability. The primary Phase I emphasis includes: (1) identifying, defining and modeling critical knowledge-based radar technologies required of multi-function, multi-mission radar suites; (2)providing simulation derived performance bound estimates of critical signal processing and mode algorithms under various prime power, update rate and field-of-regard conditions; and (3) developing Measures of Effectiveness (MOE) and Measures of Performance(MOP) to assess the techniques developed in this effort. Based upon the results of the research, performance demonstrations of selected critical knowledge-based signal processing and mode control algorithms are planned via simulation using the MOPs andMOEs defined under this effort. An integrated Phase II plan extending the development of knowledge-aided techniques for multi-function radar control is proposed. The technology developed will become instrumental in developing future DoD radar surveillanceand tracking systems. Many commercial applications such as airport surveillance (military and commercial) exist for this knowledge-based technology. Navigation and geodectic research i
