|Test Data Fusion and Analysis|
lcdc is experienced in solving the difficult problems associated with collecting useful data from range testing of complex systems.
For the Avenger Fire Control Computer Upgrade project, for example, our personnel led contractor efforts to design and develop custom instrumentation that greatly augmented the data available from standard range instrumentation. This included design and development of a In-Field Data Collection Van that collected and recorded data from system serial interfaces, internal interfaces, and video/audio channels. In addition, our personnel led the development of the hardware and software that was used to time-correlate the many diverse channels of measurements collected from each test.
For the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command (USASMDC), lcdc personnel developed a portable, real-time, graphics animation system. This system allowed users to visualize range flight events in real-time, using satellite link data when available. The system was designed to allow managers and technical personnel in the Continental United States to see the major events in the flight of a prototype strategic defense interceptor. The system was used successfully to support the final ERIS FTV flight test as the ERIS missile flew from launch at Vandenburg AFB to impact at Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific.
