The asymmetric adversary poses a serious threat to civil and military facilities. Hence, the defence against such adversaries, the so-called anti asymmetric warfare, is of interest in various environments: air respectively maritime traffic, air defence, force protection in out of area missions, harbour protection, coastal surveillance, or the security of naval platforms operating in critical environments, like littoral. A vital factor in anti asymmetric warfare is to ensure own information superiority. This leads to new requirements and very new concepts for design, implementation and integration of the information fusion and the visualisation of the results.
