Abstract:

A concept for modeling multisensor intelligence systems is described, and a related set of procedures is presented for analyzing and evaluating the performance of such systems. The methodology provides for replication of system performance by using computer simulation models for various kinds of sensors, combining the inputs introduced into the system by the specified sensor mix, and transforming the combined inputs into an integrated output for the system as a whole. Particular attention is given to the method used for combining multisensor collection system performance data into a representation of overall intelligence output capability. Special emphasis also is placed upon the subsequent use of the data in this output representation for evaluative purposes. The concept is presented both in the specific context of an order-of-battle intelligence system and in a more generalized frame of reference. Author
