Abstract:

The Joint Composite Tracking Network JCTN concept was developed as a network of sensors that would enable substantial improvements in operational capabilities including the ability to track and destroy cruise missiles. Although it includes a communications element, JCTN is more than a communications network. JCTN is a value-added processing system that includes common software to share and fuse data from participating sensors to create a highly accurate integrated aerospace picture.
