Abstract

The overall objective of this project is to develop an affordable, militarily useful and mature multi-sensor ASW fusion technology. The software will be demonstrated in a relevant environment to be at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6 for incorporation into the Multi-Mission Aircraft/P-8A. At a minimum, cross-sensor fusion of active sensors will be developed and demonstrated. Based on progress with active sensors, the status of at-sea data sets that contain relevant passive, Automatic Identification System (AIS) and radar track information, additional fusion capabilities shall be investigated and considered for final demonstration.
