AbstractMDA is designing and building a Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) that consists of integrated weapon systems and sensors capable of defeating enemy ballistic missiles. The Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) Element of the BMDS facilitates the necessary activities to allow information to be shared and engagements to be coordinated. Correlation, cueing, advanced engagement support, and fusion are core functions performed by C2BMC, which allow shared sensor data to be leveraged, and are heavily dependent on maintaining good sensor registration. As a direct result of the importance of sensor registration, the C2BMC Element has a requirement to conduct BMDS Sensor Registration Health and Status Monitoring (SRHSM) as a means to reduce the risk associated with network sharing of sensor metric track data. This proposal presents the Torch Technologies 'trusted radar' concept, which provides an innovative means to generate reference tracks to support SRHSM evaluations of networked radars.
