Paper Abstract

Current urban operations require intelligent methods for integrating data and transmitting fused information to users. In this paper, we evaluate the capability to deliver accurate and timely data to both a commander and the user on the ground. The ground user requires data on immediate threats for rapid reaction, whereas the commander has time to reason over information on potential threats for preventative action. Using predicted data and information affords proactive decision making on anticipated threats. Proactive action includes gathering new information, relocating for safety, and hindering the opposition from action. Complexities abound with urban operations and sensor fusion strategies, which revolve around delivering quality information (i.e. timely, accurate, confident, high throughput, and minimal cost). New strategies are needed to account for high density targets, sensor obscurations, and rapid response to meet Sustainable and Security Operations (SASO). The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the inherent responsibility of the fusion system to deliver a consistent and succinct set of information over the appropriate time window. This paper with highlight (1) proactive use of sensor resources, (2) integration of users with fielded system, and (3) communication and decision making modeling to meet operational timeliness needs.
