Abstract
The military typically operate in large-scale, dynamic, and semi-structured environments. A key challenge facing the military operators in these contexts, is to make the most effective use of the available, but scarce, sensors to gather the most complete and relevant information. This defines the sensor management problem that aims at utilizing the sensing resources in a manner that synergistically improves the process of data acquisition and ultimately enhances the perception and the comprehension of the situation of interest. As part of the Command & Control process, sensor management is about the adaptive coordination, allocation, and control of sensing resources. This memorandum provides a state of the art on sensor management in the context of military tactical surveillance operations. In particular, issues and constraints associated with sensor management in scenarios involving a single sensor, multiple sensors aboard a single platform, and multiple sensors distributed across multiple platforms are discussed.
