Research Institution
As the BMDS evolves over the next decade, the community will be exposed to a substantially greater amount of data from successful intercepts in all phases of the tiered defense, including boost, mid-course and terminal. In order to perform the necessary battle management, command and control functions, a net of sensors using both active RF sensors supporting the fire control, guidance and navigation functions, and some combination of airborne, space-based, or interceptor based EO/IR systems will be required. In phase 1, SciTec developed a proof-of-principle, physics-based features approach for damage assessment utilizing data from EO/IR research and development sensors, and identified and demonstrated a concept of operations for allocating functionality between the JNIC and an R & D system to provide near real-time messages via tactical broadcast systems. Utilizing a spiral development process, SciTec proposes to further evolve the features, increase the robustness of the algorithm, enhance the integration of the transmitted information for the BMDS and demonstrate the capabilities of our kill assessment algorithm. Additional research and development proposed for our Phase 2 effort will further extend the kill assessment capability beyond the single R & D sensor to future sensors planned for Block 08/10 and beyond.
