Fact sheet | High accuracy threat recognition for next generation aircraft
DST researchers are looking to fuse imagery from modern infrared sensors and laser detection and ranging (LADAR) sensors to obtain high accuracy threat recognition for efficient countermeasure response.
Through its work in this area, DST is hoping to give future aircraft tactical superiority in countering missiles and other threats.
DST's research has two objectives:
- To detect incoming missiles as far away as possible
- To classify incoming missiles more precisely
