Abstract
ALPHATECH PROPOSES TO DEVELOP INNOVATIVE ALGORITHMS FOR AIRBORNE MULTI-SPECTRAL COUNTERMEASURE MANAGEMENT BUILT UPON OUR PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED ADVANCED ALGORITHMS FOR ELECTRONIC COUNTERMEASURE (ECM) POWER MANAGEMENT FOR USE AGAINST GROUND-BASE AIR DEFENSE THREATS. THESE ALGORITHMS DETERMINE OPTIMAL COUNTERMEASURE SEQUENCES BY PREDICTING IN REAL-TIME HOW THREATS WILL RESPOND TO COUNTERMEASURES. IN SIMULATIONS AGAINST A PARTICULARLY LETHAL ANTI-AIRCRAFT ARTILLERY (AAA) SYSTEM, OUR PREDICTIVE ALGORITHM REDUCED THE EXPECTED KILL PROBABILITY BY OVER 50 PERCENT WITH RESPECT TO NON-PREDICTIVE ALGORITHMS. WE BELIEVE THAT THE CONCEPTS WE PIONEERED FOR OUR ECM POWER MANAGEMENT ALGORITHM CAN BE THE BASIS FOR A LARGE, MORE COMPREHENSIVE MULTI-SPECTRAL COUNTERMEASURE SYSTEM. FOREMOST AMONG THESE CONCEPTS ARE ALGORITHMS TO PREDICT, IN REAL-TIME, THREAT TRACKING/FIRING STATES, LOOK-AHEAD ALGORITHMS TO PREDICT HOW A THREAT WILL RESPOND TO A FUTURE SEQUENCE OF COUNTERMEASURES, AND ALGORITHMS TO EXPLOIT COLLATERAL COUNTERMEASURE APPLICATION. WE PROPOSE AN EXPLORATORY RESEARCH EFFORT TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF EXTENDING OUR CONCEPTS TO THE RANGE OF THREATS AND RADIO-FREQUENCY/ELECTRO-OPTICAL/ INFRARED COUNTERMEASURES ENVISIONED FOR YEAR 2000 AND BEYOND.
