Abstract : The overall objective of this research is to improve and enhance MUSSLE (Multiple Sensor Statistical Likelihood Estimator), the Multi-Sensor Integration algorithm under development for the E-3 AWACS platform. Modifications to the software completed to date include: enhanced three dimensional report processing for the Contact-to-Track Association module, MATCH; restructuring of the MUSSLE database so that ambiguous correlations are maintained in a cluster; improvements to the throughput speed of the algorithm; improvements to the passive tracking module; and improvements to the responses to operator switch actions. In addition to the code modifications, we produced a throughput and memory requirements analysis of the MUSSLE program.
