Sounds good against a single target, it as soon as you get multiple targets with the same signature you get multiple false locations. Vague relocation that the old UKADGE passive radar detection system had all sorts of ways to eliminate them (for electronic jammers, not IR) using hyperbolic lays etc - but there were always dozens of them when it was exercised.
Boeing/Navy just did a sensor fusion test of the new block III sensor, datalink, processing, and display suite. The results were, according to the Navy pilots, "eye watering". And this is the first iteration with significant improvements expected before it goes into full production.
