Information superiority is required to achieve full spectrum dominance in military operations. Current weapon systems are platform-centric, sensing and engagement capabilities are found in the weapon system. In this paradigm there is limited capability for the weapon to engage targets because the weapon system can only use the situational awareness created through the legacy system?s organic sensors. Developments in information technology make it much easier for weapon systems to interact with each other. To be active participants in an emerging information dominated battle space, legacy weapon fire control systems need to be adapted to process incoming targets from external sources. Multi-sensor inputs need to be translated, correlated, and fused and into a format that can be understood by legacy fire control components.
