SES-based ontological process for high level information fusion
—Data Fusion (DF) process is in the interest of the military community since it provides the opportunity to achieve information superiority. The System Entity Structure (SES) is an ontology framework that can facilitate information exchange and represent knowledge in a network-centric environment. We explore an idea of adopting the SES ontology to fuse raw data into higher-level information in DF systems for Command and Control (C2). Pruning and transformation processes of the SES ontology generate various levels of information in accordance with C2 systems’ needs, which support decision-making process in an automated way. C2 systems receive customized information through the SES Information Exchange Framework (IEF). Simulation results demonstrate the ontological DF process, and evaluate its performance in the application to categorization of air object flight patterns into high level user oriented classes. Keywords-component; SES; Ontology; Data Fusion; C2 systems; DEVS.
