Abstract : This report covers upgrades made to the General Research Corporation Advanced Surveillance Testbed (AST). Under this task, major upgrades were made to the AST phenomenological models. These included upgrades to the synthetic background models, development of a statistical persistence model, and development of a target intensity model based on CHARM and SIRRM. In addition, selected AST signal processing and data processing modules were upgraded to accommodate the newly defined phenomenological inputs.
