This position paper describes a vision of how Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear CBRN situation awareness and threat assessment can benefit from the use of Gesture-Directed Sensor-Information Fusion GDSIF. It describes a concept of operations for the war fighters use of electronic wireless-communication gloves eGloves to communicate, plan, and react while wearing Mission-Oriented Protective Posture MOPP gear. It also suggests the benefit of using the hardware and firmware resident on the eGloves to perform data fusion from environmental sensors. It provides a roadmap of research issues and challenges that will need to be overcome to realize this technological advance, and provide inspiration for other problem domains.
