Who should attend
This course is designed for project managers, software and systems engineers, scientists, and military and intelligence officers tasked with developing, using, or evaluating sensor/data fusion techniques. It also benefits systems, military, or industry representatives who have a need to learn the basic concepts, issues, and potentials of sensor/data fusion.
About the course
Accurate and efficient management of information on the battlefield is vital for successful military operations. The process of automatically filtering, aggregating, and extracting the desired information from multiple sensors and sources, and integrating and interpreting data is an emerging technology, commonly referred to as either sensor, data, or information fusion. The power to exploit all relevant information rapidly and effectively is at the core of the Net-Centric Operations (NCO) paradigm. To further advance the knowledge and work on data and information fusion, the military will need to identify concerns in technological advancement, analyze current and future requirements, as well as overcome the major challenges faced, and how these challenges can be resolved.
