This paper describes a blackboard system for integrating observations from multiple sensors. Multiple sensors report observations to the blackboard system. The blackboard system correlates the observations to a set of active models, and the models are both temporally limited and also probabilistic. The design is object-oriented, to allow for extensions that accommodate new models and sensors. An example application to a grid of sensors is presented.
