In many missile and fire control applications, targets of interest may be acquired and tracked over some finite period of time with one or more sensors. This allows for the collection of sequential segments or frames of temporal information per sensor as well as across various sensors. By appropriately processing this information, target detection and classification performance can be considerably increased. Furthermore, we have developed new and different fusion strategies (additive and MINMAX fusion) in addition to the traditional strategies. Our test and analysis results show that temporal fusion can improve target classification as well as spatial fusion. In this work we have developed an optimal and novel design for an integrated spatio-temporal multi-sensor fusion system that combines inputs from different sensors as well as from the different time frames of each sensor.
