Walter Wojciechowski is a Senior Systems Engineer at MIKEL and has extensive experience in the areas of manual and automated Target Motion Analysis (TMA), State Estimation (SE), and Contact Management (CM) to support platform navigation and weapon systems targeting at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center where he worked for over 30 years prior to joining MIKEL. He was the Functional Lead/Technical Direction Agent (TDA) for Combat Control (Tactical Situation Development) Systems associated with all current United States submarine classes (Los Angeles (688 and 688I), Sea Wolf (SSN-21), Trident, Virginia as well as Australia’s Collins Class Attack Submarines. He is the principal author of Target Motion Analysis (TMA) and Contact Management Functional Specifications and Performance Requirements for all state of the art Combat Control Systems currently employed and under development for US and Australian submarines.
Mr. Wojciechowski has over 20 years experience as Principal Investigator in the development and integration of Contact Management and advanced TMA technologies in the Sea Wolf BSY-2, Virginia, CCS MK 2, and the BYG-1 Tactical Control Systems. Results of his work have been well received by the fleet. Fleet and Peer backing have placed his work as the centerpiece of advanced technologies within these systems.
He is the principle investigator for the Advanced Contact Management System (ACMS) currently under development at MIKEL. ACMS discards 20th century legacy Sonar Tracking and Target Motion Analysis technologies and replaces them with low cost simple to operate integrated and highly automated image processing technologies. ACMS leverages Radon Transforms to substantially improve overall system performance while concurrently reducing Combat System complexity. ACMS is designed to substantially reduce system development and maintenance costs. The simple to operate automated ACMS functionality is also designed to substantially reduce operator manning requirements and training costs associated with Contact Management.
