IAI Awarded MDA Contract to Develop Advanced Data Association Algorithms for Emerging Threats

ROCKVILLE, Md.—April 6, 2020Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to develop advanced data association algorithms for emerging threats.

In this contract, IAI will develop a solution capable of performing correct data association in multi-target tracking environments with one or more sensors. The focus in this initial effort is to develop proof-of-concept data association algorithm(s) and show how these algorithm(s) are applicable to meeting the emerging threat environment, and compare the advanced algorithms performance to a baseline algorithm (current technique) using a generic data set.

 “IAI is proud to have been selected by the MDA to support its research related to air and missile threat detection,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI specializes in developing advanced sensor systems for military, transportation, and medical applications including RF-based location and tracking systems. In developing this technology, IAI will leverage its extensive experience and intellectual property in FPGA-based, high-performance, software-defined radios and prior IFF transponder research to enable rapid prototyping and validation of the design.
