Author Affiliations +
The Run Packing (RP) fusion method is a novel algorithm that addresses the con dence level fusion problem when M different sensors (or alarm sources) produce alarms independently. The goal of such a fusion method is to map the output confidence range of each alarm source to a global range shared by all of the alarm sources. The shared global confidence range allows a single receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curve to be created, and this ROC then shows the global system performance trade-o s across all alarm sources. We explain the run packing algorithm, show its application to a multi-sensor buried explosive object detection system, and compare its performance to other fusion techniques.
