Paper Abstract

The task of detecting, identifying, and engaging asymmetric threats operating amongst civilian populations is a significant challenge for modern armies. Enemy activities in urban areas can be very difficult to detect and monitor using traditional intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) assets. The concept of Persistent Surveillance provides a new methodology for detecting and identifying hostile forces operating amongst civilians in urban battlefields. The sensors, platforms, and data architectures which compose a persistent surveillance system must be chosen to maximize coverage and minimize obscuration while providing timely and relevant data to friendly forces on the ground. An illustrative example considering the specific operational concepts and resulting system choices for optimizing an airborne infrared persistent imaging system will be discussed.
