Abstract : The 1988 Tri-Service Data Fusion Symposium (DFS-88) was held at Laurel, Maryland on 17-19 May 1988 under the joint sponsorship of the Data Fusion Sub-Panel of the Joint Directors of Laboratories (JDL/DFSP), CECOM Center for Signals Warfare, Naval Air Development Center, Rome Air Development Center, and the Naval Ocean Systems Center. The symposium theme, THE ROLE OF DATA FUSION IN TACTICAL C2, emphasizes (a) the emergence of technology for implementing data fusion in military systems, and (b) the growing recognition of the role of data fusion in the data collection/information generation processes required for situation awareness and threat assessment for both tactical and strategic purposes. This proceedings include: (1) OPERATIONAL C2 BRIEFS; (2) COMMANDERS TACTICAL C2 PERSPECTIVE FORUM; (3) JOINT SERVICE/AGENCY PERSPECTIVES AND ISSUES; (4) KNOWLEDGE BASED TECHNIQUES; (5) METHODOLOGY IN DATA FUSION; (6) ADVANCED CONCEPTS; (7) TRACKER-CORRELATORS; and (8) PROGRAMS & APPLICATIONS.
