Abstract
In this Phase I, we shall develop NOMAD, a moving target prediction system. For each moving enemy target, NOMAD exploits (1) models describing the physical behavior of the moving target and (2) live intelligence about the target from spots reports or sensors such as UAV's. Using this as input, NOMAD's prediction algorithms compute the target's location at future time intervals along with an associated error estimate. In this Phase I NOMAD shall demonstrate a targeting capability by identifying available munitions at future time intervals and positions to kill the enemy - subject to rules of engagement. NOMAD leverages 21CT's (21st Century Technologies) sophisticated 3D visualization system that allows the operator to visualize the prediction of the location of enemy targets in the future. In this Phase I, NOMAD shall be scoped to demonstrate the prediction of ground moving enemy targets and targeting shall be restricted to CAS assets.
