Integration of Situational Awareness Tools in the Fight Against Unmanned Aerial Systems is a Naval Post Graduate School thesis by Brandon R. Davis and William G. Whitaker
The objective of this project is to investigate and assess the current capability gap in situational awareness technology, particularly in the integration of counter-UAS (C-UAS) sensors. Using the existing Tactical Assault Kit (TAK) situational awareness tool and applications such as the Defense Innovation Unit’s Dowding C-UAS System, this project will evaluate potential software solutions to bridge the gaps.
The results of this research will be used to develop an effective strategy for integrating C-UAS sensors into the TAK system, to enhance system capabilities and improve situational awareness. The researchers suggest creating a Dowding-based TAK plug-in to integrate data from several sensors into a unified common operating picture and emphasize the need for a more thorough and comprehensive evaluation of current C-UAS capabilities.
