Paper Abstract

This paper presents a Multi-Layered Context Impact Modulation (MCIM) technique for persistent surveillance systems (PSS) and discusses its layered architecture for different context modulations including: spatial, temporal, sensor reliability, human presence, and environmental modulations. This paper also presents a fusion model for enhancement of focus of attention at the common operation picture (COP). The fusion model combines all the impacts from the different MCIM layers onto one unified modulated map. To test and evaluate the performance of MCIM, several experiments were conducted to modulate interaction of humans and vehicles which exhibit various normal and suspicious behaviors. The experimental results show strength of this approach in correctly modulating different suspicious situations with higher degree of certainty.
