Humans exhibit remarkable abilities to estimate, filter, predict, and fuse information in target tracking tasks, To improve track quality, we extend previous tracking approaches by investigating human cognitive-level fusion for constraining the set of plausible targets where the number of targets is not known a priori. The target track algorithm predicts a belief in the position and pose for a set of targets and an automatic target recognition algorithm uses the pose estimate to calculate an accumulated target-belief classification confidence measure. The human integrates the target track information and classification confidence measures to determine the number and identification of targets. This paper implements the cognitive belief filtering approach for sensor fusion and resolves target identity through a set-theory approach by determining a plausible set of targets being tracked.
