Our proposal supports the development and integration of sensor resource management algorithms in the operational BMDS by developing and modeling new network messages required to enable centralized control of sensors. The current message set on the system does not provide sufficient control to realize the full benefit of sensor resource management algorithms currently developed within MDA. In our Phase I proposal we will adapt an existing sensor resource management algorithm for use in the BMD Benchmark simulation as a baseline implementation for developing new network messages. We address fundamental questions such as (1) Which messages are essential? (2) How does the resource scheduler on the local sensor accommodate commands from the global planner? and (3) How do limitations imposed by a real communications network impact SRM algorithm performance at deployment? The DAC-GTRI Team is extremely well prepared to address these issues. DAC brings experience developing SRM algorithms for MDA applications through Project Hercules while GTRI is a lead developer of the Benchmark simulation used for integration testing and analysis by MDA/BC and MDNTB.
