In a lab located at Fort Huachuca, AZ, BUFF analyses 170,000 hourly intelligence reports or about 3 terabytes of data each day. The goal of the BUFF program is to reach the Level II of the data fusion hierarchy -- Level I occurs when a sensor is able to detect the movement of an object in a battle space while Level II blends data from multiple sensors.
Many scientists believe that reaching Level II will take two decades, but promoters of the BUFF program think they can do better. This overview contains other details and references.
