Research Institution
The challenge of providing the sensor operator and tactical decision maker with all pertinent acoustic information and clues associated with any given contact has long eluded a solution. The technology to address this shortcoming is now available and we are pleased to have this opportunity to propose a method to implement a solution. 21st Century Systems Inc. proposes to leverage its considerable intelligent agent expertise for the development of a leading edge modular software system to manage and execute passive target signature fusion. The research concept, named Multi-Model Ensemble Agents (MMEA), focuses on a method that takes a systems engineering approach to attack the challenge. The ultimate goal of this research is to bring together all of the sensor data/information that is dispersed among several sources into a single presentation. Intelligent agents will be applied to assess every external sensor report and provide the operator with an integrated 2D/3D display of the environmental situation generated with all of the clues that the agents assigned to the searching task have accumulated. The research will focus on a design of software components for the current sensory system to reroute processor outputs to displays that consolidate all information related to any given contact.
