Research Institution
In order to provide the best protection to our armed forces, and to our country, we need to know where our opponents are, and what they are doing. This includes tracking their movements over long periods of time, and across large areas such that multiple sensor and seeker systems would need to be utilized. Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) proposes to design a coordinated targeting and engagement system for the sensor and seeker/weapons management domain that will coordinate the tracking of targets utilizing multiple systems from space to surface, and coordinate the hand-off between sensing and seeker systems. The desired result will be a collection of software components that can be easily integrated into a distributed sensor and seeker management system, and that can be used for a variety of DOD target tracking missions. Phase I will concentrate on design and analysis, and Phase II on implementation and test within a mutually agreed upon simulation environment. Phase III will focus on insertion into an on-going DOD program.
