Summary The underwater domain is one of the most challenging realms for naval operations. With the increasing sophistication of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and their improved sensor payloads combined with more traditional underwater sensor systems, there is a need to be able to integrate these various sources into a distributed network. Given the increased volume of data that will occur, there is a need for a data fusion architecture that integrates the output from various sources into coherent information. Also, given the rapid changes in data fusion technology, there is a need for a systems-engineered, product-line approach that captures the state-of-the -art and provides a framework for the integration of technology advances as they occur.
The goal of this study is to develop a reference architecture based on product line principles that integrates the tenets of the Joint Data Labs (JDL) data fusion model. This will provide a framework for the study of relevant information fusion concepts and technologies in future applications.
