Abstract
"Whether the subject is satellite surveillance data, clues on terrorist activities, or corporate decision-making, we are globally drawing in information. To win the war on information we need knowledge and the appropriate systems to optimally use it oninformation. To solve Autonomous Satellite Cluster Data Fusion and other distributed information fusion problems, we must be able to autonomously process and act on information, distribute and share knowledge, and enable distributed systems to workcooperatively. Sentar proposes to address these challenges with an Event-Driven Distributed Information Fusion (EDIF) System. Our concept is to build the EDIF System with a hierarchy of intelligent agents. Using our KnoWeb¿ technology for DynamicDistributed Problem Solving will greatly accelerate our ability to build systems of autonomous components capable of sharing knowledge and solving distributed fusion problems cooperatively.The benefits of such a system are clear in the context of enhanced surveillance mission effectiveness and processing efficiencies on autonomous satellites. These same benefits can greatly impact the war on terrorism as well as corporate decision-making andcustomer support. By enabling satellites and other distributed assets to share information and cue each other for data collection and fusion, surveillance mission effectiveness is greatly enhanced. The benefits of finding and preventing one terrorist plot are notmean
