Abstract
In this note we introduce the idea of adaptive scheduling based on a cost function methodology. As the warfare environment becomes more complex, individual sensor resources are stretched, and the usage of the sensors has grown. In a multi-ship multi-platform environment, one has the potential to share information across platforms. This would dramatically increase the strategic and tactical picture available to mission planners and commanders at all force levels. In order to accomplish this mission, the sensors must all be coordinated so adaptability and multi-force tasking can be accomplished with netted sensors. Adaptive sensor management expands group capabilities by freeing up resources such as dwells/energy management. Savings arise by effective usage of tracking resources by revisiting threats with radar resources only when needed. This can be done by introducing analytic cost functions of the revisit time that enable one to minimize revisit time while maintaining error within acceptable bounds.
