Abstract:

In the Fusion Metrics program, a multi-sensor testbed was developed and an associated multisensor fusion system was demonstrated in an initial data collection. In developing this testbed, algorithms developed in part in previous Air Force research programs were developed into a single platform. A demonstration included moving vehicle targets captured in multiple image sensors, and the real-time fusion of imagery to detect and maintain track on targets. Next, the same algorithms were developed into a modular software fusion testbed to demonstrate rapid prototyping of fusion methodologies via this fusion metric software testbed. Multi-sensor video was fused and fusion classifier algorithms were evaluated via statistical metrics. The software fusion metrics testbed represents a way to rapidly assess new fusion algorithms, and to perform parameter tuning to optimize fusion systems.
