A Novel Two-Staged Decision Support Based Threat Evaluation and Weapon Assignment Algorithm
Surveillance Control and Reporting (SCR) system for air threats play an important role in the defense of a country. SCR system corresponds to air and ground situation management/processing along with information fusion, communication, coordination, simulation and other critical defense oriented tasks. Threat Evaluation and Weapon Assignment (TEWA) sits at the core of SCR system. In such a system, maximal or near maximal utilization of constrained resources is of extreme importance. Manual TEWA systems cannot provide optimality because of different limitations e.g. Surface to Air Missile (SAM) can fire from a distance of 5Km, but manual TEWA systems are constrained by human vision range and other constraints.
