The proposed Phase 2.5 effort will extend the Phase 2 results to airborne data collected at operational altitudes consistent with the current ASW mission profile. The proposed effort will also be extended to include airborne data collected at altitudes above the current ASW mission profile in an effort to provide equal or improved performance at higher altitudes. Theses efforts will include items such as optimization of the filter kernel, analysis of flight test data, review/analysis of the ACF code implementation, analysis of high altitude data, development of playback methods with the ACF on the AN/APS-147 and AN/APS-153 hardware architectures, optimization of the ARPDD mode detection chain, and analysis of radar data through the automatic direct discriminator using the ACF algorithm. These tasks will provide sufficient data in both a simulated computer environment and on real time processing hardware in a software laboratory environment to increase the TRL prior to technology insertion.
