Abstract
MDA plans to use sensors such as PTSS, SM-3, UEWR, and AN/TPY-2 to track and intercept ballistic missiles. In order to be successful, the C2BMC element must: 1) achieve and maintain stereo tracks, 2) perform target characterization, 3) prioritize and assign targets to interceptors, and 4) handover object information to the interceptor in a form that will allow it to identify the object on its focal plane. The objective of this effort is to develop and test a multi-sensor data fusion algorithm suite that will fuse information from multiple EO and RF sensors to estimate every tracked object"s physical properties and dynamics for the purpose of aiding in forward predicting signatures and features for the interceptor as well as providing useful information for system target characterization. Assessments of improvements obtainable by using the algorithm suite within the C2BMC for target characterization, correlation of tracks, and handover of object information to the interceptor will be conducted.
