Abstract
The surveillance test bed (STB) is utilized by the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization in its system integration and testing. The test bed provides a `level field' or standardized test environment for multiple surveillance signal and data processing algorithm developers. STB's most salient features are the integration of high fidelity signatures, backgrounds, and signal processing models with algorithms for sensor tasking, bulk filtering, track/correlation, and discrimination with the integration of radar and optical estimates for track and discrimination. The STB currently hosts baseline tasking, bulk filtering, correlation/tracking, and discrimination algorithms which are prototypes for the algorithms which will be hosted in the operational system. This paper reviews the current status and capabilities of the STB with respect to optical signal and data processing needs for small targets in backgrounds typically found in Strategic Defense scenarios.
