Abstract
THE USE OF MULTIPLE SENSORS FOR ELECTRONIC SIGNAL UNDERSTANDING HAS IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES. MULTIPLE VIEWING ANGLES CAN PROVIDE MULTIPLE DIRECTION FINDING, MULTIPLE DOPPLER MEASUREMENTS FOR TARGET VELOCITY DETERMINATION, ROBUSTNESS AGAINST TERRAIN MASKING/SPOOFING, ETC. ALTHOUGH THE DATA FROM MULTIPLE SENSORS CAN BE SENT TO A CENTRAL SITE FOR PROCESSING, A DISTRIBUTED ELECTRONIC SIGNAL UNDERSTANDING SYSTEM WITH MULTIPLE PROCESSING NODES HAS BENEFITS SUCH AS LESS VULNERABILITY, REDUCED COMMUNICATION, ETC. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF SUCH A SYSTEM. THE MAIN TECHNOLOGY NEEDED IS DISTRIBUTED EVIDENTIAL REASONING FOR SITUATION ASSESSMENT. EACH NODE PROCESSES ITS OWN DATA AND COOPERATES WITH OTHER NODES TO IMPROVE ON THE SITUATION ASSESSMENT. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL ANALYSE THE PROBLEM, IDENTIFY THE KEY RESEARCH ISSUES, AND DEMONSTRATE THE CONCEPT OF SUCH A DISTRIBUTED SYSTEM.
