Research fields such as Network Enabled Capabilities, ubiquitous computing and distributed sensor networks, etc. deal with a lot of information and a lot of different processes to fuse data to a desired level of situation awareness. Already quite some research is done in applying information theoretic concepts to sensor management. Effective communication between functional components in the fusion hierarchy can be achieved by combining these approaches. We propose a method that makes the interaction between different fusion processes more efficient and effective. This is particularly useful in situations with costly or overused communication facilities
