Abstract
MDA plans to use optical platforms, such as PTSS, ABIR, and SM-3, to track ballistic missiles in support of ascent phase intercepts. For success, there are a number of system level challenges that the C2BMC element must overcome. A few of these are: 1) achieve and maintain stereo tracks, 2) perform lethal object discrimination, 3) prioritize and assign lethal targets to interceptors, and 4) handover lethal object information to the interceptor in a form that will allow it to identify the lethal object on its focal plane. The objective of this proposed effort is to: 1) use SysTRAAK, ExoAnalytic"s BMDS end-to-end simulation, to demonstrate these challenges on MDA"s ability to close the fire control loop in a complex ascent phase scene and ultimately intercept the lethal payloads, 2) develop algorithms to meet these challenges, drawing upon our base of existing TRL 2-6 algorithms developed during MDA/DV funded efforts over the past 10 years, and 3) deliver the algorithms to MDA for insertion into the C2BMC element. This proposal will investigate using radiometric information to enhance the probability of correct handover with demonstrations focused on ascent phase intercept.
