This Phase I SBIR project addresses the development and feasibility evaluation of handheld and vehicle-mounted see-thru-the-wall (STTW) capability combined with non-lethal weapon (NLW) through the use of infrasound technology that meet the Army needs and as a key element for the Future Combat System (FCS) and is spelled out in the FCS Operational Requirements Document (ORD). The work involves investigation of underlying infrasound technology as applied to STTW applications (STTW-ISCAP) and NLW applications (NLISW). The STTW-ISCAP and NLISW are combined in a Infrasound Standoff Combat Capability (ISTACC) wherein they share a single platform with displays and controls and possibly other components. This allows for combined combat operations as well as activation of one or the other dependent on the situation. The Phase I will determine the size, weight, power, component technology, and standoff capability achievable based on the limiting physics. Components-off-the-shelf (COTS) will be utilized as much as possible in the implementation. Use will be made of the ground work that has been done by Department of Energy in the area of location of objects and faults in the earth as well as the work performed in the medical field research on the effect of infrasound on human.
