This course is designed to help participants identify and characterize the principal components of military data and information fusion systems; to learn the state-of the art in multi-sensor integration, in target tracking, identification and situation/threat assessment; and select fusion techniques appropriate to system and mission needs. Accurate and efficient management of information on the battlefield is vital for successful military operations. The process of automatically filtering, aggregating and extracting the desired information from multiple sensors and sources, and integrating and interpreting data is an emerging technology, commonly referred to as either sensor, data, or information fusion. The power to exploit all relevant information rapidly and effectively is at the core of the Net-Centric Operations (NCO) paradigm. To further advance the knowledge and work on data and information fusion, the military will need to identify concerns in technological advancement, analyze current and future requirements, as well as overcome the major challenges faced, and how these challenges can be resolved. Classified discussions will be part of this course.
