Abstract
The driving force behind ONR’s unmanned sea surface vehicle (USSV) program is the great potential for these versatile vehicles to support Navy ships in the littoral environment. However, if USSVs are to fulfill this expectation, efforts must be made to make them less challenging to operate in order to reduce the manpower footprint. In a perfect world, these systems would be cooperative heterogeneous mobile entities balancing resource allocation, onboard/offboard processing, prioritization, and communications themselves. To meet this challenge, 21st Century Systems, Incorporated (21CSI) is pleased to propose the Sensor And Track Fusion for Collaborative Reconnaissance (SEA TRAFFCR) concept. We propose to exploit the synergy between an innovative data correlation/fusion concept and a novel track correlation and association algorithm. The marriage of these innovative algorithms create a tool that will combine sensor data and tracks from heterogeneous and distributed sources into an accurate and timely common operating picture. With our impressive track record of being able to transition technology (100th percentile on the DoD commercialization index) and our strong research and development team, 21CSI is the right team at the right time to propel the USSV program to its littoral destiny.
