– A State Transition Data Fusion Model is introduced as an extension of the dominant sensor fusion paradigm to provide a unification of both sensor and higher-level fusion.
– When designing a higher-level fusion system the designer must choose between options, and in doing so confronts a number of tradeoffs. This paper outlines some of those options and the tradeoffs that those options involve.
– High-Level Information Fusion (HLIF) is a relatively new exploration of methods in the last decade. The discussion will address the issues between low-level (signal processing and object state estimation and characterization) and high-level information fusion (control, situational understanding, and relationships to the environment). From a series of… (More)
– The State Transition Data Fusion (STDF) Model is an extension of the dominant sensor fusion paradigm to provide a unification of both sensor and higher-level fusion. Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) is the problem of situation awareness in the maritime domain. This paper outlines an application of the STDF model to perform automated situation assessments… (More)
