This paper addresses multi-sensor surveillance where some sensors provide intermittent, feature-rich information. Effective exploitation of this information in a multi-hypothesis tracking context requires computationally-intractable processing with deep hypothesis trees. This report introduces two approaches to address this problem, and compares these to single-stage, track-while-fuse processing. The first is a track-before-fuse approach that provides computational efficiency at the cost of reduced track continuity; the second is a track-break-fuse approach that is computationally efficient without sacrificing track continuity. Simulation and sea trial results are provided.
