The sensor tasking capability discussed here is part of a resource allocation manager (RAM) that integrates command, control and communications (C3) functions within individual sensor subsystems, among multiple sensors on a platform, and across multiple independent platforms. The RAM contributes significantly to multi-platform interoperability and situation awareness operations. System level functional capabilities include interactive management of kinematic and non-kinematic attribute state estimation accuracies, Situation Assessment, Threat Assessment and data bandwidth management among cooperating sensing platforms. The RAM is innovative state-of-the-art closed-loop surveillance and tracking technology. The same algorithms that manage system level kinematic and identification accuracy also inherently manage sensor modes, bias and misalignment estimation, maintenance schedules, data link bandwidth usage, built-in-test, calibration and even logistics. An overview of the fusion architecture and tracking system in which the RAM is integrated is discussed first, followed by performance analyses using measured and modeled data.
