A generic missile warner decision algorithm for airborne platforms with an emphasis on multiple classifier systems is proposed within the scope of this thesis. For developing the algorithm, simulation data are utilized. The simulation data are created in order to cover a wide range of real-life scenarios and for this purpose a scenario creation methodology is proposed. The scenarios are simulated by a generic missile warner simulator and tracked object data for each scenario are produced. Various feature extraction techniques are applied to the output data of the scenarios and feature sets are generated. Feature sets are examined by using various statistical methods. The performance of selected multiple classifier systems are evaluated for all feature sets and experimental results are presented.
