Abstract
In Phase II, Daniel H. Wagner Associates will build a full-scale prototype Multi-Sensor Data Fusion System (MSDFS) using a modular approach to allow for a straightforward transition of the innovative MSDFS technologies into the DD(X)/Open Architecture Track Management (OATM) architecture and also into other Navy combat and command and control systems, especially Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Torpedo Defense (TD) systems operating under reduced manning constraints. In particular, we will use this Phase II MSDFS system to further develop effective data fusion and target prioritization techniques in support of DD(X) (and OATM) ASW and TD operations, and in support of transitioning these innovative MSDFS technologies, specifically Bayesian inferential reasoning, multiple-hypothesis association, and non-Gaussian registration and data fusion, into other operational Navy and command and control systems. We will also quantitatively and qualitatively evaluate MSDFS performance using both simulated and real-world sensor data, and demonstrate the effective use of MSDFS technologies in operational littoral environments.
