Abstract

Helios Remote Sensing Systems, Inc. proposes to develop and estimate the performance of innovative improvements to radar systems that will help defeat advanced countermeasures. Novel signal processing techniques for detecting and filtering objects will provide for improved radar tracking in dense raid environments. The proposed techniques will allow for rapid filtering of debris and advanced countermeasure objects in a threat complex, and will correctly identify credible objects within the complex and enhance tracking of those objects. Our Phase II effort will extend our Phase I proof of concept study; we will identify designs, models, and test capabilities in greater detail than during Phase I. Our plan is to integrate debris mitigation technology into a high fidelity simulation to allow performance evaluation against representative missile defense raid scenarios, and to demonstrate significant track and discrimination enhancement opportunities. Our Phase II work will validate the viability of the proposed solution and the concept of operations will be clearly documented. Approved for Public Release 15-MDA-8169 (20 March 15)
