Problem Solving 101 with Kenneth Hintz – Sensor management in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance

At Artech House, we ask our authors what problems their books can help readers solve. In this series, we share what our authors aim to do in their writing. Read on to see what Kenneth Hintz, who wrote Sensor Management in ISR, has to say about his book: Sensor management in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) …

Integrating Theories to Manage Sensors with Kenneth Hintz

Artech author Kenneth Hintz gave us insight into theories of sensor management: There is no single theory of sensor management due to the heterogeneity of sensors (physical, social, cyber, database), applicable mathematics (game theory, estimation, information, statistics, probability), and users with different needs (strategic, tactical) and values (local, national, political, ethical).  What started out as …

The Evolving Data-Rich, Information-Poor (DRIP) Environment with Ken Hintz

Artech author Ken Hintz gave us insight into today’s sensing environment: Today’s sensing environment not only contains the conventional military physical sensors such as RADAR, FLIR, LIDAR, ESM, etc., but also includes widely distributed physical environmental sensors in the internet of things (IoT). The number of civilian networked devices comprising the IoT was an estimated …

Architecting Information Acquisition To Satisfy Competing Goals with Kenneth J. Hintz

Information Based Sensor Management  (IBSM) was briefly described in an earlier posting, but the question arises as to what are the criteria which led to this inevitable approach to sensor management.  That is, how do you architect the noncommensurate elements of IBSM while satisfying competing mission goals.  We present here a brief synopsis of an …
