The Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) relies heavily on radar tracking information to make battle management decisions regarding the engagement of potential threats. Current BMDS radar tracking relies heavily on the Kalman Filter based algorithms to perform target tracking functions. To improve track accuracy over traditional Kalman Filter algorithms, IERUS will perform further development of the particle filter (PF) based for target tracking termed Adaptive Parameter Estimation (APE). APE has several advantages over traditional Kalman Filters (KF), primarily centered on its ability to handle non-linear tracking problems. During Phase 2, the IERUS team will develop and demonstrate a real-time track application and assess performance within a digital simulation of the AN/TPY-2.
