Paper Abstract

In ballistic missile defense, knowledge of the threat type during the boost phase is important for accurate prediction, especially in the presence of threat-specific variations (e.g. staging). A combined boost phase tracking/threat-typing algorithm based on multiple tracking filters is presented. Each filter employs a threat-specific thrust-acceleration profile used for state compensation, and model probabilities calculated using Bayes rule for threat typing.
