Paper Abstract

Future Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) tasking and exploitation will be based on a "system of systems" that carries out tasking, collection, integration, interpretation, and exploitation. The vision is of a closedloop tasking-exploitation-tasking ISR information system that learns from its continuous data accumulation over multiple observations, accruing and assessing evidence to determine if further tasking is needed to resolve residual target ambiguities. That closed-loop collection of systems would provide a better ability to direct ISR sensors and fuse multisource data. Such a system, with the enormous amounts of data involved and the requirement for timeliness, will require the use of automated systems that work together efficiently under real-world conditions. This paper reviews issues that are relevant to ISR tasking, coordination, and data formatting. Procedural solutions that were developed and implemented during experimental operations to correlate and fuse full motion video with ground moving target information forming real-time, actionable, coalition intelligence, are presented.
