Abstract:

GEO-CENTERS, INC. PROPOSED TO DESIGN, DEVELOP, AND TEST A NOVEL SENSOR SYSTEM FOR WIDE AREA MINES (WAMS) THAT WILL ULTIMATELY DETECT ARMORED VEHICLES AT DISTANCES EXCEEDING 100 METERS. A MAGNETIC SENSOR TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AND DEMONSTRATED WHICH PROMISES TO UNIQUELY COMBINE HIGH SENSITIVITY WITH EXTREME SIMPLICITY, RELIABILITY, RUGGEDNESS, COMPACT SIZE AND LOW COST. PROJECTED SENSITIVITIES PREDICT A THEORETICAL DETECTION RANGE OF GREATER THAN 200 METERS FOR A 20 TON TANK. THIS PHASE I SBIR PROGRAM WILL ANALYTICALLY DETERMIE AND EXPERIMENTALLY DEMONSTRATE THE ABILITY OF THIS MAGNETIC SENSOR TECHNOLOGY TO DETECT TARGET VEHICLES AT LARGE DISTANCES IN THE FIELD. DATA COLLECTED IN THE FIELD WILL DEMONSTRATE THE CAPABILITY OF THE SENSOR FOR WAM APPLICATIONS AND ANALYTIC CALCULATIONS WILL BE PERFORMED TO DETERMINE THE CAPABILITY OF THE FULLY DEVELOPED SENSOR TO DETECT MILITARILY SIGNIFICANT TARGETS. THE ADDITIONAL CAPABILITY GAINED BY USING THIS MAGNETIC SENSOR IN AN ARRAY OF COMMUNICATING AND COOPERATING WAMS WILL BE EXPLORED.
