Abstract
This document presents the literature survey update for the report published under DIRP project #031: High-Level Information Fusion Applied to AISIRADARSAT-2 for Enhanced Maritime Surveillance. The survey details the state-of-the-art algorithms and processes that utilize Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Automatic Identification System (AIS) as data sources in the goal of de-cluttering the operator's workspace. This report is broken down into three main sections each describing a distinct aspect of the problem at hand. The first describes the Level 0/1 fusion techniques, the second describes the HLIF techniques while the third describes Hard-Soft Information Fusion (HSIF) techniques. Advantages and disadvantages for the most relevant techniques are discussed and quantifiable metrics are disclosed, if made available in the source reference. This literature survey report provides an update and encompasses information that has come to light since the original literature survey was delivered within DIRP project #031.
