Traditional tactical communications systems consist of a number of separate subsystems with little interworking between them and with external sensors and weapons systems. Combat net radio (CNR) has provided the high-mobility communications required by combat troops, while trunk communications systems have provided high-capacity communications between headquarters at the expense of mobility. The focus of this book is on new, information-age technologies that promise to offer seamless integration of real-time data sharing, creating a single logical network architecture to facilitate the movement of data throughout the battlespace. Because the structure of this network is constrained by the fundamental trade-off between range, mobility and capacity that applies to all communications systems, this network is unlikely to be based on a single network technology. This book presents an architecture for this network, and shows how its subsystems can be integrated to form a single logical network.

Since the publication of the first edition of this book, advances in algorithms, logic and software tools have transformed the field of data fusion. The latest edition covers these areas as well as smart agents, human computer interaction, cognitive aides to analysis and data system fusion control. data fusion system, this book guides you through the process of determining the trade-offs among competing data fusion algorithms, selecting commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) tools, and understanding when data fusion improves systems processing. Completely new chapters in this second edition explain data fusion system control, DARPA's recently developed TRIP model, and the latest applications of data fusion in data warehousing and medical equipment, as well as defence systems.

Radio communications plays an increasingly critical and growing role in today's electronic battlefield. Because more and more radio signals are deployed in electronic warfare (EW) situations, determining which ones are friendly and which are enemy has become more difficult and crucial. This book arms defense systems designers and operators with the full array of traditional search mechanisms and advanced high-resolution techniques for targeting radio signals deployed in electronic warfare. An invaluable technical reference, the book helps professionals fully understand the tradeoffs involved in designing EW target acquisition systems with less time and effort. Moreover, practitioners learn how to establish optimum methods for acquiring communication targets for exploitation or countermeasures. The book also serves as an excellent text for graduate courses in electronic warfare.
