Electronic warfare EW is a land combat function. EW produces tactical intelligence information which, if timely, can affect the outcome of the battle. Automation is required for the EWintelligence cycle to stay inside the ever-narrowing window of the commanders opportunity to respond to and impact battlefield situations. Data fusion will automate the EW analysis process to provide timely situation assessments. Data Fusion and Correlation Techniques Testbed DFACTT is a system designed in Canada to respond to the Canadian EW requirement. It is user verified and field proven. DFACTT is also the vehicle for long term research into the more esoteric AI aspects of EW analysis including multisensor fusion. DFACTT is made up of a number of workstations which, together, automate the land EW process as practised by Canadas EW squadron.
