Paper Abstract

Various fusion system architectures postulated and studied previously for environments with two and three data sources are further explored in this study to bring out the expanding scope for delineating the architecture options for multiple data source environments. A spectrum of single and multi-stage fusion architecture options are defined. The potential for such expansion of choices is illustrated using the scenario with four data sources as an example. Potential problem environments corresponding to this range of two to four data sources are identified. Various fusion logic strategies that can be brought to bear for the analysis of these fusion architecture options, when these fusion architectures are employed for Decisions In - Decision Out (DEI-DEO) fusion, are also discussed.
