Abstract
Missile Defense Agency (MDA) recently adopted the Phased Adaptive Approach (PAA) to enhance the Ballistic Missile Defense System"s (BMDS) ability to counter emerging threats in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. PAA primarily focuses on fielding new sensor technology (e.g. AN/TPY-2 and PTSS) and weapon technology (e.g. SM-3). As a result of these new systems entering the BMDS, Command Control Battle Management and Communication (C2BMC) functionality requires new algorithms for sensor resource scheduling. These algorithms must be capable of real-time adaptation to account for sensor availability and changing threat scenes, as well as ensure sufficient data collection throughout an engagement (i.e. acquisition, track, discrimination, and hit/kill assessment). In response to this technology need, ExoAnalytic Solutions Inc. proposes O-SMART: Ontological Sensor Management and Real-time Tasking. The objective of O-SMART is to develop a sensor management system that leverages recent advancements in semantic technology and Information Theory, as well as over 50 man years of BMDS experience by ExoAnalytic Solutions researchers, to adaptively allocate sensor resources in a multi-raid and/or multi-target environment. O-SMART"s technical approach will emphasize diversity in sensor viewing geometry and phenomenology as a means to providing accurate, timely tracking and discrimination quality of services to BMDS weapon systems.
