Abstract:

There is great need for safe, cost-effective methods to deal with the issue of unexploded ordnance (UXO) on mortar and artillery ranges. Quantum Technology Sciences, Inc. (QTSI) has been developing a Seismic-Acoustic Impact Monitoring Assessment (SAIMA) system for this purpose based on a wired design concept. Much of the development progress with this simpler wired system can be leveraged to develop conceptual designs for a wireless and more capable system. QTSI proposes to develop conceptual designs and evaluate deployment schemes to recommend optimal designs to build, field, and evaluate as prototype multi-array systems in Phase II that will meet stated performance requirements. This Phase I work will be accomplished by evaluating options for sensor hardware and firmware design improvements, algorithm improvements, and a new wireless network communications architecture with a compatible remote data processing station. QTSI will evaluate effects of multiple geophysical factors to gain a greater understanding of their effects for improving probability of detection, ordnance impact classification (high order detonation, low order detonation, or UXO), and location accuracy. Using QTSI's Optimum Positioning of Sensors algorithm, options for deployment schemes will be evaluated to find optimal solutions for ranges of varying ordnance caliber and size.
