Abstract
The AquaQuIPS multi-INT, ship track data fusion engine has shown exceptional performance during numerous Navy Exercises, including Trident Warrior 08 and Trident Warrior 09. AquaQuIPS finished as a Top Ten technology and has been chosen for an experiment to interdict self powered semi submersible (SPSS) contacts in TW-10. AquaQuIPS has been integrated into a large NAVSEA Program of Record five years ago called Undersea Warfare Decision Support System based on its performance relative to that of other data fusion processors. Using this real time experience and excellent performance, a design concept for a Mission Level Modeling and Simulation Processor is proposed for six levels of processing: sensor inputs: net sensor GRIDs, single sensor trackers; data fusion engine modeling in dense target environments; abnormal behavior detection; and strategic and tactical courses of action decisions. The Mission Intelligence Sensor Management and Data Fusion Automation & Collaboration Tool (MISMADFACT) design is described for each of the six levels, and a new Simulated Annealing algorithm is introduced for difficult optimization problems. A unique approach for abnormal behavior detection is described based on Fleet operator inputs from TW-08 and TW-09. The Option Task focuses on the unique data fusion issues of introducing an acoustic sensor.
