Abstract:

SPEC will develop and deliver a suite of extended duration (2 year+), covert, unattended sensors for near real-time monitoring of the passage of people and vehicles in critical, remote border areas. The Advanced Unattended Ground Sensor (AUGS) will form a robust network of sensors, using a variable information bridge, to relay actionable information to the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). Advanced image processing techniques will discriminate targets of interest from naturally occurring objects and events, with fewer than three false alarms per day for sensors operating in support of an individual CBP station. AUGS will employ SPEC s advanced, miniature LADAR technology in a tripwire sensor (with a range of 1 kilometer in adverse weather conditions) and an imaging camera, and will include adaptable, networked communications, anti-tamper mechanisms, and environmentally-appropriate camouflage. The AUGS system will be supported by small, unattended RF communications relay units, a handheld emplacement support device and a laptop-compatible, GUI-based software application for warning and report. Warning and reporting thresholds will be flexible to accommodate different user preferences.
