Abstract:

This report is a part of research conducted at the Center for Multisource Information Fusion CMIF at the State University of New York at Buffalo SUNY at Buffalo during the second arid third year of a three-year Air Force Office of Scientific Research AFOSR-funded research grant to Calspan-UB Research Center, Inc. CUBRC. The overarching research objective of this grant is to provide understanding about the nature of multi-platform and distributed data fusion and the influence that such methods might have on flight-testing of future multi-platform systems at major range facilities such as, in particular, Edwards Air Force Base, and also with a special focus on Electronic Warfare EW aspects and impacts. The effort stems from the visions for future combat depicted in various DoD forward-looking documents such as Joint Vision 2010 JV2O 10, the Advanced Battlespace Information System ABIS, and New World Vistas NWV, among other similar reports. In those documents, sensibly all views of the future theater environment show a highly distributed but highly connected information environment, with the backbone data-linking infrastructure generally labeled as the infosphere or Cybersphere. In essence the backbone for information reconnaissance in future theater environment will be a set of complex distributed data fusion systems consisting of but not limited to onboard and off-board fusion systems.
