Abstract:

The Decisive Analytics Corporation DAC team describes a framework to fully integrate the tracking and discrimination processes in the Ballistic Missile Defense System BMDS.The contributions developed under this work center on fully integrating the tracking and discrimination processes in the Ballistic Missile Defense System BMDS. The current architecture of the BMDS artificially separates the tracking and discrimination algorithms. Each model exists independently with no ability to influence the operation of the other. This situation precludes taking advantage of the inherent relationships that exist between a threat objects type and its kinematics. Making full use of these relationships will improve both the accuracy of the tracking algorithm and the power of the discrimination model to distinguish the Reentry Vehicle RV from other, non lethal object types. This framework could be equally viable to Army Air and Missile Defense on Tactical Ballistic Missiles TBM and maneuvering Air Breathing Targets ABT by using kinematics as well as geometry to continue a track after it leaves and returns to the field of view.
