Abstract:

Makel Engineering proposes to develop a Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS)-based chemical sensor system for detection of human targets, which could pose a threat to United States military personnel and assets. The proposed sensor system would useMEMs based chemical sensors and wireless communications technology to produce a low cost remote sensing system for a wide range of military applications that could be deployed as small packages around installations or used with rovers to explore terrainsuch as caves and tunnels to search for human targets.The proposed sensor system will be based on MEMs sensors, which can detect indicators of prolonged human activity in areas that are assumed secure or uninhabited. Chemical sensors can be used to detect, ammonia, urea, sulfur compounds, and methane frombiological waste products. Chemical sensors can also be used to detect enhanced carbon dioxide levels in enclosed areas. Physical sensors for parameters such as sound, IR signature, and temperature can provide further indicators of the presence of humantargets. This creates a sensor system that can be deployed with a
