Advancements in both sensor hardware technology and in software systems and processing technology have enabled the development of practical realtime situation assessment capabilities based upon information from unattended ground sensors. A decision support workstation that employs rule- based expert system processing of reports from unattended ground sensors is described. The primary goal of this development activity is to produce a suite of software to track vehicles using data from unattended ground sensors. The situational assessment products from this system have stand-alone utility, but are also intended to provide cueing support for overhead sensors and supplementary feeds to all- source fusion centers. The conceptual framework, developmental architecture, and demonstration field tests of the system are described.
