Abstract
The ExoMHT association algorithm is an innovative Multiple Hypotheses Tracker which operates in real-time for large numbers of boosting, maneuvering, and deploying targets. During Phase I, ExoAnalytic Solutions developed the ExoMHT association algorithm into a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 3 algorithm, incorporated this algorithm into a system-level simulation called SysTRAAK, and demonstrated performance. The ExoMHT association algorithm successfully ran in real-time on a large MDA raid scenario containing 78 missiles. During Phase II, ExoAnalytic Solutions will mature the ExoMHT association algorithm into a TRL 6 algorithm, which will be ready for insertion into various MDA program elements during Phase III. Improvements to the ExoMHT association algorithm during Phase II will include adding a sensor bias correction capability, structuring the code to take advantage of multiple processors, upgrading the algorithm to utilize feature-aided track correlation inputs, and other upgrades based on extensive testing and MDA element feedback. The ExoMHT association algorithm performance will be characterized against raid scenarios of interest for a variety of IR sensor platforms. Promoting, adapting, and documenting the ExoMHT association algorithm in preparation for Phase III will also be a focus of this proposed effort.
