Abstract
Over the last several years, the United States Military has been undergoing a radical transition from a traditional “platform-centric” force to one capable of performing in a state-of-the-art “Network-Centric” environment. With this transformation comes the challenge of creating and maintaining a globally consistent tactical picture across a distributed ad-hoc sensor network. In order to meet this challenge, the Decisive Analytics Corporation (DAC) team brings to bear industry leading capabilities, experience, and technology in the areas of information fusion, tracking, distributed and network programming, and intelligent agents to develop and deploy an interlaced information and adjudication network system for real-time low-level information fusion based on the Dual Node Network (DNN) architecture. Through the study of network topologies, data association schema, and state estimation techniques, this effort will result in a point design for an intelligent agent managed infostructure fusion network to support Army Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance (ISR) operations in the future battlefield.
