McQ Inc. is a leading provider of high performance, advanced technology unattended ground sensor (UGS) systems. Our research spans two decades of investigating technologies suitable for automatically detecting, classifying, identifying, imaging, and tracking targets in remote regions. In this SBIR project, we will develop an UGS system specifically tailored for integration with existing and planned UAV ISR systems. Our investigations will lay the groundwork for the engineering that leads to a fully functional and operational prototype system. The UGS system will be integrated to and demonstrated with a UAV imaging system. The program will demonstrate the ability of the integrated systems to effectively detect, classify, identify, image and track targets within the airborne imagery using UGS systems with very long life (years).
