Multi-sensor correlation and fusion of disparate tracking data for accurate identification of moving targets.
Information from multiple sensors must be effectively integrated and combined to deliver the most timely, accurate, and complete picture of a tactical environment. By correlating data from disparate Movement Intelligence (MOVINT) sources, Hydra delivers a more accurate and complete estimate of target position, velocity, and heading than from a single data source alone.
Hydra can ingest data formats collected through multiple sensing modalities, providing an opportunity for multi-sensor movement intelligence, cueing, and correlation.
- Full Motion Video (FMV)
- Wide Area Motion Imagery (WAMI)
- Moving Target Indication (MTI) radar
- Automated Identification System (AIS)
- Signals and communications intelligence
- Unattended Ground Stations (UGS)
- Real-time location sharing
- Global Positioning System (GPS)
Targets can be tracked more consistently, more accurately, and for greater periods of time by combining the observations of multiple sensors into a single-fused track. This automated creation of activity and network metadata through correlation with MOVINT sources allows operators to continuously bring high-level context to tactical operations.
