Abstract
Daniel H. Wagner Associates, Inc. will develop a Collision Avoidance Situation Assessment Generator and Tactical Decision Aid (CASAG/TDA). The CASAG/TDA will dynamically generate a Collision Avoidance oriented Situation Assessment (SA) and a recommended collision avoidance plans, both based on processing all available data. The primary algorithmic techniques that will be utilized are Bayesian inferential reasoning, multiple hypothesis association, non-Gaussian tracking, and non-Gaussian optimization. In Phase I of this project we will show the feasibility of creating the CASAG/TDA, and we will also describe how we will visualize the tactical situation for the submarine Sonar and Combat operators and provide these operator with recommendations concerning how to avoid potential collisions.
