FEATHAR

Fusion, Exploitation, Algorithm, Targeting High-Altitude Reconnaissance

In association with the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), SDL developed enhanced integrated multi-intelligence sensor systems and fusion processing algorithms for multiple-networked intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance platforms. The FEATHAR program demonstrated:

  • Real-time exploitation, fusion, and networked dissemination of targeting information and intelligence products needed for time critical strike applications.
  • Real-time control of multiple sensor payloads and deployed UAVs from networked air and mobile ground based stations. This includes autonomous control, cueing, and image chipping.
  • Real-time auto-thresholding algorithms for interactive, fusion-based target detection and data mining.
