Lossless information fusion for active ranging and detection systems

Abstract:

The authors develop a centralized information fusion architecture from basic principles of information theory and Bayesian statistics. It is well known that any clustering, quantizing, or thresholding of data causes loss of information unless a sufficient statistic is computed in the processing. For the case of wideband active ranging systems, the coherent output of an optimum beamformer and a matched filter is a sufficient statistic that can be transmitted to the fusion center. For unknown t...
