CCDC C5ISR

A method for operating a distributed multi-sensor system for spectrum mapping and signal exploitation. The method includes selecting a plurality of distributed sensors including at least one or more clusters of distributed sensors, sending a request to the plurality of distributed sensors to collect signal snapshot copies, routing the signal snapshot copies or information from the plurality of distributed sensors as inputs to at least one fusion module, processing all inputs before sending any next request to the plurality of distributed sensors, optimizing the one or more clusters of distributed sensors, combining multiple distributed signal inputs in the at least one fusion module, and making a global decision. A system for spectrum mapping and signal exploitation and a storage medium encoded with machine-readable computer code for implementing the method are also disclosed.
