As a company and as individuals, Wagner Associates has received widespread recognition for outstanding contributions to both government and private industry. Wagner Associates invented (starting in 1972 with the CASP Search and Rescue system) and has continued to further develop the field of computer assisted search (CAS). These CAS systems use highly sophisticated mathematical algorithms to evaluate and optimize the effectiveness of Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Surface Warfare (SUW), Air Warfare (AW), and Mine Countermeasures (MCM) and Search and Rescue (SAR) operations. In particular, the Navy has used these systems very effectively in real-world and exercise operations. These CAS systems were the first implementations of what are now known as “particle filters”. Wagner Associates was also the originator of the IOU Kalman Filter (aka Maneuvering Target Statistical Tracker (MTST)), which has been utilized in many DoD systems such as the Global Command and Control System (GCCS) and the Tomahawk Weapon Control System (TWCS).
