Abstract:

Sensor observations of mobile time-critical, or pop-up targets are typically brief and punctuated by long, irregularly sized invervals. However, maintaining or at least estimating the positions and motions of time-critical targets is of utmost importance for reducing their threat to naval aviators and other naval assets. The TEMMPTS software tool processes data from a variety of sources to determine the regions where time-critical targets are most likely to be found, and thus forms the first link in an estimate-search destroy chain for such targets. Presented here is an overview of the TEMMPTS project, a description of some of the most important design objectives for the TEMMPTS tool, and a discussion of the work underway to meet those objectives.
