AbstractThe US Navy seeks science and technology feasibility research emphasizing innovative imagery and data fusion approaches for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and exploitation (i.e., ISR). Interest includes using data from multiple sensors/systems for comprehensive and timely ISR, supporting operational users in joint force battlespace environments. We propose to research and develop linear structural modeling methods for fundamentally advancing geospatial fusion. We plan to use the progressive technique to manage and analyze geospatial attributes that affect directly and indirectly latent and manifest battlespace dynamics. Remotely sensed imagery provides vital information for generating these models, capturing many of the primary indicators for exogenous and endogenous causal relations significant to military planning and operations. We believe this offers a radically different geofusion approach. Among others, it is capable of utilizing the wealth of variables typically obtained when analysts work jointly on multiple tasks as per battlespace CONOPS. Furthermore, by examining complex reciprocal causation, structural relations focuses on true combined battlespace ISR attributes. There are no known remote sensing geofusion solutions using structural relations, yet the civil and military user communities continue searching for fundamental breakthroughs along these themes, and this bodes well for commercialization of an eventual software solution during Phase II.
