Abstract
THE FOCUS OF THIS PROJECT WILL BE TO DEFINE AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH FOR ASSOCIATING TARGET REPORTS FROM DISSIMILAR SENSORS INCLUDING FORWARD LOOKING INFRARED (FLIR), TV AND MILLIMETER WAVE (MMW) RADAR. THIS APPROACH INCLUDES CORRECTIONS FOR SENSOR MISALIGNMENTS, FILTERING OF SENSOR MEASUREMENTS FOR IMPROVED ACCURACIES, AND EMPLOYMENT OF A DIGITAL TERRAIN DATABASE (DTD) FOR THE ESTIMATION OF MISSION SENSOR MEASUREMENT PARAMETERS. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL ALSO EXAMINE THE PROPER CHOICE OF THE COORDINATE FRAME USED TO PERFORM THE ASSOCIATION PROCESS, THE PROPAGATION OF TARGET REPORTS TO A COMMON TIME REFERENCE, THE ESTIMATION OF SENSOR MISALIGNMENTS, AND THE SENSOR MEASUREMENT AND DIGITAL TERRAIN DATABASE ACCURACIES REQUIRED FOR ADEQUATE CORRELATION PERFORMANCE.
