Research Institution
Daniel H. Wagner Associates, Inc., with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) as a subcontractor, will develop an Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Tactical Decision Aid (ISRTDA). This system will carry out Level 2 data fusionthat will significantly improve mine warfare situational awareness within the maritime littoral region. As defined by the Joint Directors of Laboratories Data Fusion Subpanel, Level 2 data fusion (situation assessment) involves creating hypotheticalscenarios of the state of the threat, including patterns, placement, and types of mines. The ISRTDA will evaluate the mine warfare situation using information from MIW Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations. It will also determinehow best to utilize available MIW Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) assets to improve the situational awareness of MIW planners and operators. ISRTDA will allow MIW planners and operators to (1) develop more effective ISR plans, (2) moreaccurately evaluate the effectiveness of ISR operations, and (3) more accurately evaluate the threat to shipping from mines that may be in a maritime littoral region of interest. Having these capabilities will significantly improve the ability of Naval MIWforces to carry out their missions through the more effective use of information obtained fro ISR systems.
