Abstract
"The objective of this project is to investigate, evaluate, and demonstrate the feasibility of a Data Fusion Unit for Mid-Air Collision Avoidance System (MCAS) to merge numerous MCAS data sources. The proposed system will be developed based on AGNC productsand advanced processing techniques providing a versatile high performance computation platform and robust data fusion algorithm. This data fusion unit can be integrated into the Mid-Air Collision Avoidance System (MCAS) to merge multiple data tracks of asingle aircraft from numerous MCAS data sources, including Mode-S, Link-16, Mode-5, and traffic information service B (TIS B), into one accurate single track for MCAS phases 2 and 3. In Phase I, efforts are focused on assessing needs, identifyingrequirements, processing implementation, and conducting analytical/experimental simulation tests for results to establish performance criteria and design specifications for subsequent prototype development in Phase II. This project leads to a Data FusionUnit for Mid-Air Collision Avoidance System (MCAS), which is of great military and commercial potential, such as, Air Traffic Control (ATC) systems, general aviation, spacecraft, and cargo airlines."
