Abstract:

The goal of a sensor manager is to cue the right sensor to perform the right service on the right target at the right time. This task essentially implies JDL Level 4 strategies and algorithms for control and action. In response to SBIR MDA04-023, 21st Century Systems, Inc. is pleased to propose researching and developing state-of-the-art "system-of-systems" management for sensor platforms with multiple capabilities/constraints for GMD operations. We refer to our concept as the HCAN Sensor Manager. The HCAN Sensor Manager concept utilizes a sophisticated intelligent agent reasoning structure called a hierarchical collective agent network (HCAN). This leading edge structure incorporates a "community of agents" and was developed by 21CSI. The HCAN core will optimize management of the system in question and relative to other systems on the platform that would be affected. HCAN considers optimization at the sensor system level, as well as, the higher "systems" level of the total platform capability and its mission. All of this will accelerate GMD sensor operations and this "system-of-systems" management eventually will be extended to shooters, as well. This SBIR will culminate in an agent-based sensor management system, a unique product.
