Today, a wide range of sensors and mobile systems - both aerial and ground-based - are available for surveillance and reconnaissance tasks. For example, they provide first responders with current information about the situation at the operation site. In many cases those systems have their own dedicated control and exploitation station. The joint control of heterogeneous sensors and platforms, as well as the exploitation and fusion of heterogeneous data is a challenge. The surveillance system AMFIS presented in this paper is an integration platform that can be used to interconnect system components and algorithms. The specific tasks that can be performed using AMFIS include surveillance of scenes and paths, detection, localization and identification of people and vehicles as well as collection of evidence. The major advantages of this ground control station are its capability to display and fuse data from multiple sensor sources and the high flexibility of the software framework to build a variety of surveillance applications.
