Paper Abstract

We describe our approach to model the Tasking, Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination (TPED) process that accounts for multi-sensor fusion while characterizing and optimizing TPED architecture performance across multiple mission objectives. The method would address the inability of current models to assess the valued added by multisensor fusion techniques to ISR mission success, while providing a means to translate detailed output of sensor fusion techniques to higher-level information that is relevant to ISR planning and analysis. The technical approach incorporates treatment of ISR sensor performance, dynamic sensor tasking and multi-sensor fusion within a probability modeling framework to allow rapid evaluation of TPED information throughput and latency. This would permit characterization/optimization of TPED architecture performance against time critical/sensitive targets (TCTs/TSTs), while simultaneously supporting other air-to-ground targeting missions within the Air Tasking Order cycle. TPED architecture performance metrics would include the probability of achieving operational timeliness requirements while providing requisite target identification and localization.
