Paper Abstract

Distributed Sensor Concept - DISCO was proposed for multiplication of individual sensor capabilities through non-coherent cooperative target engagement. The signal processing technique for DISCO is Recursive Adaptive Frame Integration of Limited data - RAFIL technique that was initially proposed as a way to improve the SNR, reduce data rate and mitigate FPA noise for IR sensors. In DISCO, the RAFIL technique is used in a segmented way, when constituencies of the technique are spatially and temporally separated between individual sensors. Each sensor provides to and receives data from other sensors in the network. In this paper efficiency of DISCO is discussed for acquisition, accurate handover and track correlation of small targets.
