Abstract
Lakota Technical Solutions, Inc. will develop a target classification capability based on emitter characteristics passively detected by ESM systems. Successful classification is based in part and fundamentally reliant upon successful emissions based target tracking. This tracking is based upon a probabilistic multi-hypothesis tracking capability which associates multiple emissions with specific tracks. This enables emitter based target classification to be performed using the transferable belief model where no single emitter is required to be classified. This capability will be integrated into the Navys Open Architecture to make the classification results as well as the ESM data itself available within the OA based combat management system.
