An interesting problem arises in multi platform-multisensor information fusion system when sources disagree on the classification or identity of an unknown entity. If there is disagreement, the ideal situation ins a high level of confidence form a single source with complete disagreement in the remaining sources. This is not always the case and situations may arise where the winner is only successful by a small margin and there is collective disagreement amongst the losing sources. This paper describes a new terminology, disfusion, which is used for the characterization of disagreement between information sources and can enhance the final conclusion of a fusion system.
