TITLE: QuEST for DDDAS through Information Fusion —- Erik Blasch

ABSTRACT QuEST (QUalia Exploitation of Sensing Technology) has recently been focused on a theory of knowledge for situation understanding as supporting the decision quality between a computer and human agent. To achieve QuEST, numerous cross-discipline approaches are needed of which two include information fusion and dynamic data driven application systems (DDDAS). DDDAS brings together theoretical modeling/simulation, instrumentation measurements, applications algorithms and systems software. As noted then, traditional approaches to information and QuEST have developed many methods for measurement and algorithms; however, the theoretical and systems software are needed for future systems. In this talk, we (1) focus on the relations between DDDAS, Information Fusion, and QUEST, (2) demonstrate a use case of importance to the QuEST team in a user-defined operating picture, and (3) pose challenges that surround the combined approaches. The talk is supposed to be in the spirit of the QuEST discussions in bringing a few ideas and posing a research collaboration within the team.
