Paper Abstract

Within a Surveillance and Reconnaissance System, the Fusion Process is an essential part of the software package since the different sensors measurements are combined by this process; each sensor sends its data to a fusion center whose task is to elaborate the best tactical situation. In this paper, a practical algorithm of data fusion applied to a military application context is presented; the case studied here is a medium-range surveillance situation featuring a dual-sensor platform which combines a surveillance Radar and an IRST; both sensors are collocated. The presented performances were obtained on validation scenarios via simulations performed by SAGEM with the ESSOR ('Environnement de Simulation de Senseurs Optroniques et Radar') multisensor simulation test bench.
