Track Data Fusion Engine

Track Data Fusion Engine

Operators face an overwhelming amount of data. The Track Data Fusion Engine (TDFE) combines this data into a clear and accurate air situation picture, reducing the operators' workload, enabling fast reaction.

Compiling your situational picture

The Track Data Fusion Engine (TDFE) is a high performance multi-sensor tracker and correlator. It effectively establishes one track for each target by fusing measurements from a mix of active and passive sensors together with tracks provided by other systems.

It can easily be configured for use in various surveillance applications such as air defence ground environment, combat management systems on ships, airborne early warning, and coastal surveillance systems.

TDFE fuses sensor sources such as ADS-B, AIS, Electronic Support Measures (ESM) and Electronic Counter Measures (ECM).

  • Performs multi-sensor tracking
  • Performs track correlation
  • Performs target identification according to Nato standards
  • Operates in the air, surface or sub-surface domains
  • Very high capacity without performance degradation
  • Suitable for covering very large areas
  • Support for automatic, semi-automatic and manual tracking and correlation modes
  • Scalable from single sensor system to systems with more than 100 sensors

The scalable stand-alone design makes the TDFE easily customised and suitable for new command and control systems as well as older systems in need of an upgrade. The straightforward design ensures an effortless integration with new sensors and surveillance systems. It has very high track and sensor capacity, but is equally suitable for small single sensor systems.

Did you know...

Designing a multi sensor fusion system requires combining advanced scientific techniques, such as estimation theory, with experience in sensor properties, operator needs and implementation aspects.

  • The TDFE establishes one track per target, fusing measurements from active and passive sensors as well as tracks from other sensors
  • TDFE is the core of Saab's own 9AIR TOCCS, 9AIR CRS 9AIR Compact C2 air operation solutions as well as the 9LV CMS.
  • TDFE handles data fusion of targets in multiple domains: air, land, surface and sub-surface.
The TDFE can be scaled from a single sensor tracker up to handling more than 100 sensors.
