Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe the nature of the problem of surveillance of airport surface movement. We describe the characteristics, performance, and unique problems of various airport sensors available, and the need to develop a fusion system to provide an integrated surveillance picture. Parallel sensor fusion developments are described in terms of their applicability to the sensor fusion task in surface surveillance. Paradigms for sensor fusion, including alternative architectures, algorithms, and performance metrics will be described. Finally we describe system implementation and quantitative performance of sensor fusion applied to the surface surveillance problem at demonstrations in Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport (1998, ATL), Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (1999, 2000, DFW), and in-process and planned future developments in sensor fusion.
