Counter Unmanned Aerial System Decision-Aid Logic Process (C-UAS DALP)
MetadataShow full item record
Small, highly capable, and inexpensive unmanned aerial systems (UASs) are commonplace, easily modified, and being weaponized to aid the enemy in attacking U.S. interests around the world. NAVAIR and other stakeholders have multiple and available sensor and countermeasure capabilities that surveil, detect, track, and attack these UAS threats, but these capabilities lack a decision-aid or logic process that bridges the middle elements of the kill chain between detection to countermeasure response. This capstone project creates the logic for a decision process that transitions from the initial detection, characterization, and threat determination to a recommended response based on available sensor and countermeasure data. This logic process enables an operator to quickly, reliably, consistently, and repeatedly make the optimal tactical decisions in response to a dynamic threat environment. The products and deliverables include the concept of operations, functional architecture, design reference mission, modeling and simulation, decision-aid logic process, future research considerations, and recommendations. The concept of operations describes conceptual ideas relating to the manner of use, location, general logic process, and reference mission. This is the framework for the IDEF0 functional architecture diagrams, decision-aid diagrams, logic process, and modeling and simulation.
