Paper Abstract

In tactical operations, maintaining the pedigree of data may be problematic due to limitations in data links. If the pedigree information is missing and/or incomplete, information that arrives at a sensor platform may include information that the platform itself created. If the platform uses this data again, the platform will become incorrectly more confident of this information. This condition is called “self-intoxication,” and it is a system of systems problem. This paper assesses the effects of self-intoxication on the covariance consistency, i.e. how accurately the platform’s track covariance reflects the true uncertainty. We analyze covariance consistency of a track relative to truth.
