    • Jackson State University (JSU) with program oversight by the U.S. Army's Space and Missile Defense Command's (SMDC) Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) office continues to transition technological advances in Vertical Integration of Surveillance Data for space and missile defense needs. The JSU Team is developing, validating and adapting information-based, time sensitive, decision-support products that provide synergy among multiple defense-oriented data sources. The Vertical Integration (VI) program integrates, correlates, tests and fuses a variety of data sets that are located on different and, at most times, uncoordinated data acquisition systems. Synthesized and correlated information is produced from sensors (automated and manual), human collection, and archived files establishing a dynamic architecture of threat related information for war-fighters at all levels of command.

    • The PPRF is used extensively to develop new hardened structural design criteria to help protect US assets as well as attack and defeat enemy assets. Experimental results also drive the enhancement of the US's capability to perform High Performance Computer Modeling of a wide range of targets or scenarios effecting survivability, structural enhancements; weapon design and provides direct input to multiple DoD and federal agency programs.
