Abstract : The overall goal of the Air Force's Non-Cooperative Target Identification (NCTI) program is to assess the feasibility and benefits of improving airborne long range target identification. Better target identification will contribute to improved weapons management, allow employment of beyond-visual-range (BVR) weapons, improve identification of friend or foe (IFF) or neutral, reduce fratricide, and improve situation awareness and air battle management. This program enhanced the existing RL/IRA TAC BRAWLER-based NCTI modeling environment through further developing an existing 'software Backplane' prototype, and continued the acquisition and integration of existing stand alone models into that environment. The enhanced capability allows for more accurate and realistic simulation studies to be undertaken for the purpose of assessing the feasibility and benefits of improving our aircraft's long range target identification capabilities
