Paper Abstract

We consider the payoff for opportunistic fusion of essentially autonomous sensors operating with unequal orders of non-coherent integration. We also evaluate the degradation in fusion performance due to intersensor cross-correlation introduced via a Swerling 2 target model. We parameterize where fusion is not productive and show the integration necessary for comparable single sensor performance.
