Data fusion plays a major role in assisting decision makers by providing them with an improved situational awareness so that informed decisions could be made about the events that occur in the field. This involves combining a multitude of sensor modalities such that the resulting output is better than what it would have been if the data streams from the resources are taken individually. However, these feeds lack any context-related information. This hinders the fusion process and may result in creating an incorrect picture about the situation.
