This paper presents a concept on how a military formation can be jointly protected by linking available single-platform protection systems. To achieve this, a mobile ad hoc network is established between different vehicles carrying heterogeneous sensors, specifically acoustic and ESM sensors, emulating the protection systems. Distributed data fusion is applied to provide a situation overview for localizing a threat. To substantiate the concept, results from field tests regarding network, sensor, and data fusion functionality are presented.
