Abstract
The problem of fusing identity declarations emanating from different sources is explored and decision makers are offered a quantitative analysis based on statistical methodology that can enhance their decision making processes regarding the identity of detected objects. The context is naval warfare where commanders and their staff require access to a wide range of information to carry out their duties. This information provides them with the knowledge necessary to determine the position, identity and behavior of the enemy. Statistical analysis rooted in the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence is used to further the fusion of identity declarations.
