Abstract : Electronic Warfare is a land combat function. To be effective on the modern battlefield, Land EW requires an integrated Command and Control Information System (CCIS). The EW CCIS must automate the tasking of EW assets, sensor data collection, and reporting of threat warnings and tactical Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) to the battlefield commander. Automation of the command and control function has changed the Electronic Waifare process, resulting in a continuously evolving EW CCIS requirement specific to the Canadian Forces. The Data Fusion And Correlation Techniques Testbed (DFACIT) is being developed at Defence Research Establishment Ottawa using an evolutionaiy prototyping approach to determine and define the CCIS and tactical SIGINT analysis requirements of the Land Force's EW squadron. This report describes the status of the DFACTTproject as of September 1995. (MM)
