Abstract
Gimbaled sensor technology and unmanned air vehicle (UAV) guidance systems have advanced to the point where sensor-guided UAV flight operations can become reality. Mosaic ATM proposes a unique predictor-corrector framework for achieving persistent tactical seeability, a measure that estimates the exploitation quality of imagery captured by a moving platform over rugged terrain. Our approach integrates a predictive mechanism for terrain-cognizant sensor/platform configuration with an online planning and guidance capability for maintaining reliable quality of service in the face of environmental and operational disturbances. We have teamed with Brigham Young University's MAGICC Lab to provide the Army with a complete solution featuring rapid sensor configuration and real-time corrective guidance.
