Abstract
Abstract The deciBel/SAIC Team Phase II effort will enhance and refine the design, development, and testing the prototype Environment Characterization and Clutter Mitigation Algorithms developed during Phase I. These enhancements will: 1) provide robustness, 2) permit for automation, while expanding applicability, and 3) ensure transition into current builds of BMDS sensor"s tactical software. The new/enhanced designs will provide modules that were assumed to be available in the Phase I to illustrate Proof-of-Principle algorithms. A comprehensive set of parametric analyses addressing sensor waveforms, errors, operational timelines, threat characteristics, and scenario/engagement variations, will be performed following the Project Hercules"Design-to-Capability"testing methodology, using both field and high-fidelity simulated signature data. Plans will be made for the algorithms to be tested in available SN radar tactical"Side-Cars". The prototype algorithms performance will be characterized by Radar Operating Characteristics based on Monte Carlo computations for detection, false alarm, and leakage. The ultimate objective of this effort will be a Phase II-Integration program, followed by a Phase III program, to seamlessly integrate these new algorithms within the tactical Software/Mission Applications Program (MAP) of all BMDS radars, particularly the SN X-Band radars
