Abstract : This report contains a summary of the main activities and results of the first year of the Artificial Intelligence Discrimination Architecture (AIDA) program. The program arose from a joint US/UK initiative - outlined in a white paper from the Special Systems Department (55) in the Royal Aerospace Establishment (RAE) Farnborough - to follow on research into the subject of discrimination initiated under the United Kingdom Architecture Study (UKAS) program. The main aim of the project was to develop a Framework into which discrimination algorithms, simulated and real threat data, and sensor models representing real world elements of a Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) system could be placed. The Framework would provide facilities to allow threat locations, raid composition, flight dynamics, sensor viewing and sensor detection processes to be modeled. Once signature data was extracted from the sensors facilities to process and analyse the discrimination data and present the results of this analysis to an operator were also required. In parallel with the development of the Framework the program provided for continued research into the topic of discrimination, notably in the mid course phase, using innovative algorithmic concepts. The aim being to define a comprehensive TMD discrimination algorithm. In the first year of the project this research has studied signature analysis algorithms in the boost and mid course phases and has defined an infrastructure in which these algorithms can operate as part of a comprehensive end-to-end classification and discrimination process within a TMD system.
