Research Institution
Today"s Ballistic Missile Defense networks consist of many different types of sensors and platforms, and given the expanded focus of MDA on theater and regional missile defense where multiple"raids"can be launched from different sites toward numerous targets, it is crucial that they can be dynamically tasked and deployed effectively in real-time to realize their full potential in achieving overall mission objectives. Effective cooperative use of multiple sensory sources requires development of algorithmic strategies to optimally manage these resources, subject to constraints, in order to provide the best quality of service to the weapon systems. To meet these aims, the Edaptive Computing team proposes SMAART, which will result in innovative, robust, commercially viable, real-time sensor resource management algorithms and software. The advantages of our algorithms over more standard approaches include their robustness to uncertainty, scalability, and their ability to operate in real time for complex scenarios. Through our innovative algorithms embedded into a flexible and intuitive sensor system simulation framework, SMAART can facilitate the development of robust and effective sensor resource management systems, and potentially other complex decision making applications.
