Abstract : The Data Fusion and Correlation Techniques Testbed (DFACTT) was developed at Defence Research Establishment Ottawa to investigate automated analysis processes for Communications Electronic Warfare. The aim is to automate the collection, correlation and fusion of Electronic Warfare (EW) and intelligence data to provide real-time enemy situation estimates and immediate threat warning to the battlefield commander. DFACTT employs integrated command, control, and communication functions to automate the complete EW process. Developed in an object oriented software environment, DFACTT collects, correlates, displays on a topographic map, and stores EW and intelligence data. The main functions of the system include automated sensor data analysis and doctrinal template matching. This document describes advances made in the development of new algorithms and techniques for radio location data analysis and doctrinal template matching.
