Good job on that, thanks.

--Edit.. Joy, a paywall :bang:

Those at a college (or local library via OpenAthens login) should have access, hint, hint :roll:

I just found out a FREE way to get the docs.

Use the OpenAthens login and search for your local library if you have a library card. OpenAthens also services many higher education colleges & universities.

Far more fun actually attending (although there's a lot of boring stuff at AVIATION compared to SciTech). :D

You mean I paid my 10+-year-old overdue fees to get my library card for nothing????? :doh:

-------Edit--------
Damn.... apparently I am going to need those after all. The library listed on the site is not "my" library even though they have the same name. :bang:

I think that was only an oral presentation.

That F-35 Information Fusion document is excellent description of how fusion is done in F-35 (and to lesser extent F-22) and how it differs from 4th and 4++ gen fighters (with correlation and track blending). It also describes the benefits of such fusion system very well, although I'm sure most people still don't really understand just how powerful a closed loop sensor fusion system is.

What I found particularly interesting was the description of how MADL supports sensor fusion in F-35. It seems to share astonishing amount of data compared to legacy data links and the quality of data is also something else. A single F-35 is extremely impressive ISR node. A flight of F-35s is an ISR monster...

Btw, thank you for providing these documents!
