ITA sensor fabric

View publication


The diverse sensor types and networking technologies commonly used in fielded sensor networks provide a unique set of challenges[1] in the areas of sensor identification, interoperability, and sensor data consumability. The ITA Sensor Fabric is a middleware infrastructure - developed as part of the International Technology Alliance (ITA)[2] in Network and Information Science - that addresses these challenges by providing unified access to, and management of, sensor networks. The Fabric spans the network from command and control, though forward operating bases, and out to mobile forces and fielded sensors, maximising the availability and utility of intelligence information to users. © 2009 SPIE.
