Research Institution

Vadum will develop a suite of algorithms that generate optimal Predicted Intercept Points (PIP) for the Aegis Weapons System (AWS). The Threat Prediction for Air Defense (TPAD) system will analyze kinematic profiles of threats attacking in raids or swarms, and generate optimal PIPs that maximize overall engagement success. TPAD will generate sets of PIPs in a shot sequence that prevent post-intercept debris from obscuring other shots in a barrage.
