ISR Gets “Fused” at JEFX:

Intelligence-surveillance-reconnaissance analysts plan to test a faster means to provide ISR data to warfighters, using an analysis process called PANACIA, or Predictive Awareness and Network-Centric Analysis for Collaborative Intelligence Assessment. The process integrates a wide range of data that would have been stove piped to individual section analysts and brings it all into one place for faster review and processing back to the battlefield, according to Col. Mike Canna, the ISR division chief for the experiment. The process is building on the concept of “fusion”—which matches up various types of information to develop an assessment that tries to predict enemy actions.
