Maritime Situation Awareness involves keeping track of and understanding hundreds of pieces of information. Automated higher-level data fusion (Level-2/3 fusion) and resource management can provide valuable assistance to commanders and analysts who need to achieve situation awareness. InformLab was created to help with this task. It is an advanced simulation framework that addresses higher-level fusion concepts for the purpose of evaluating the effectiveness of Network Enabled Operations focused on Coastal Wide Area Surveillance applications. The testbed allows for experimenting with higher-level distributed hierarchical information fusion, dynamic resource management, and configuration management with multiple constraints on the resources and their communications networks. The testbed provides for evaluation of a range of control strategies from independent platform search, through various levels of platform collaboration, up to a centralized control of search platforms.
