Inference Propagation in Emitter, System Hierarchies
Emitter and system hierarchies are represented by inference nets and propositional relationships. Emitters are the primitive objects of the domain and systems consist of relationships among emitters. Evidence gathered concerning the identification of emitters must be used to classify both emitters and systems. Evidential reasoning and inference nets are used to to combine information at each level. Methods of direct and indirect transfer of evidence between levels are presented.
