An international panel of leading experts gives you a penetrating and cohesive look at current and future information fusion technology in this unique volume. Examining decision-making models and the command and control process, you develop a solid foundation that lets you explore the latest in situation awareness. The book examines human factors and their effect on analysis to help you judge users' trust in decision support systems.

You find practical mathematical techniques and visualization methods, as well as tested heuristics, that show you how systems can achieve higher levels of fusion. The book details the Visual Fusion and Adaptive Sensor Fusion systems developed by the U.S. Department of Defense, offering insight into implementation issues and performance requirements. Moreover this leading-edge reference discusses systems interoperability among coalition forces as they prepare to confront future conflicts that transcend national boundaries.
