Future military surveillance systems will utilize multiple spatially distributed networked sensors to sense the battlespace. Many unsolved mathematical problems arise in network centric warfare including: (1) Development of optimal strategies for distributed platform and sensor control; (2) Development of methods that maximize the communications network capacity and efficiency of spectrum/spatial usage while ensuring a specified level of network quality of service and (3) Improving the quality of target detection, localization and classification using multiple distributed sensors. In this IMA talk I will examine selected mathematical challenges that we at Lockheed Martin-Eagan have encountered in our efforts to improve sensor localization accuracy.
