Abstract
SciTec, Inc., in collaboration with the University of Michigan (U. Mich.), proposes to develop advanced processing and exploitation algorithms and methods in order to improve the ability of the Missile Defense Agency"s (MDA"s) Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC) to characterize and transmit information about complex, cluttered scenes of operational relevance. The methods developed will minimize the number of objects tracked by the system, while maximizing the positional accuracy as well as scene information content for subsequent fire control formation. For this effort, SciTec will leverage its substantial data holdings, current and past work on several key processing and exploitation algorithms, its extensive experience working within and for the Missile Defense and Intelligence communities, and, supported by its partners at the University of Michigan, will research and develop novel image deblurring and/or super-resolution algorithms for incorporation into the C2BMC that will allow the system to better exploit data from disparate sensors, such as Airborne InfraRed. With SciTec"s and U. Mich."s combined expertise in EO/IR sensing, algorithm design, signal and image processing, modeling, target tracking, sensor fusion, applied mathematics, and MDA mission analysis, this team is uniquely suited and prepared for the task.
