Research Institution
Not Available ALPHATECH proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate an integrated Surface Ship Surveillance System (S4) that will a) track and classify maritime targets using reports from a constellation of space based radars, and b) detect patterns of target behavior that deviate from derived models of normalcy. ALPHATECH will model the space-based radar based on the DARPA/Joint Service Discoverer II initiative, a low earth orbit satellite constellation that uses Moving Target Indicator (MTI) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). We will demonstrate our S4 concept using internally developed scenarios running on an ALPHATECH simulation. Scenarios will be developed to demonstrate the performance and capabilities of the S4 concept in the stressing, dense littoral environment critical to developing complete Situation Awareness. ALPHATECH's experience in tracking, information fusion, and product development maximizes the expected benefit to the Navy, while minimizing the overall program risk. We are / have been key contractors for efforts involving: multiple hypothesis tracking, force pattern analysis, force level aggregation, target kinematic models, human computer interface design, and Global Command & Control System (GCCS) mission application development. Our role as researchers and developers for DARPA and the Services will promote cross-fertilization of ideas, while minimizing potential duplication of effort. The proposed technology will help provide USN complete surface situation
