2005 Multisensor, Multisource Information Fusion: Architectures, Algorithms, and Applications 2005  
The performance of a multi-sensor data fusion system is inherently constrained by the configuration of the given sensor suite.  ...  This was highlighted by Hintz and McIntyre who propose a goal lattice based approach which encompasses the encoding of a number of military defined objectives into a lattice used for sensor management  ...  Whilst this offers a convenient and analytical means of integrating the filtering and management systems, optimizing for information alone is inherently suboptimal with respect to the global system goals  ...
