Abstract:

This paper describes the Advanced Sensor Exploitation Testbed developed by the Rome Air Development Center for the purpose of evaluating and testing advanced techniques in the area of multi-sensor, multi-discipline correlation. The Testbed consists of three subsystems 1 the scenario generation subsystem, 2 the sensor simulation subsystem, and 3 the correlation and exploitation algorithms. The scenario generation subsystem, referred to as Dynamic Ground Target Simulator, is a computer automated system for the development of ground truth. Ground truth is any activity that occurs in the battlefield in relation to movement or emission of opposing ground forces. The sensor simulation subsystem consists of generic moving target indicator, radio detectionlocation, radar detectionlocation and imaging type sensors that act as filters for the ground truth. Ground truth data is filtered out undetected depending on local terrain and sensor operating characteristics. The correlation and exploitation algorithms are resident within the Advanced Sensor Exploitation Element and provide such data as military unit identification, the identification and tracking of high prioritycritical targets, threat alerts and activity level indicators. The Advanced Sensor Exploitation Testbed along with built-in evaluation routines allow for the development, test and evaluation of automated correlation and identification algorithms in as a realistic environment as possible.
