1) 3rd Annual Sensor Fusion Conference, Washington, D.C., USA, 29 November -1 December 2006

    Improving the Automation, Integration, Analysis and Distribution of Information to the Warfighter

Superior weaponry alone will not win the war on terrorism. Only through knowing more and knowing first will the threat of terrorist strikes in the homeland, and asymmetric tactics in the battlefield, be overcome. The briefings will offer personnel working in Sensor Fusion related roles, ways of improving bandwidth and processing power in Sensor Fusion systems, they will also explore automation in data and information fusion, examine the challenges and possibilities of vertical integration to include space based sensor platforms and ultimately provide delegates with a better understanding of the issue of visualization. This event provides the information needed, to overcome some of the most difficult technical obstacles faced by the military's operations and intelligence communities, as it relates to gathering and distributing information in a net-centric environment.


With a strong emphasis on technical subjects, designed to address key operational challenges, the third annual Sensor Fusion conference allows participants to explore the current issues and challenges related to maximizing the potential of sensor, computer and communications technology to ensure that US and coalition warfighters have the information they need to better locate, track and eliminate their enemies while avoiding surprise attacks, now and in the future.



Pre Conference Workshop

Threat Assessment Issues and Methods, November 29, 2006

Facilitated By: Alan Steinberg, Senior Research Scientist, Calspan University of Buffalo Research Center
