Title: ARGUS: Scalable And Reliable RF sensing for Long-Duration Personnel Tracking
Agency: DHS
Contract: D14PC00062
Award Amount: $1,010,000.00


A recent U.S. Government Accountability Office report noted that that less than 1 percent of the 4,000-mile long border between the United States and Canada is under the operational control of U.S. Border Patrol. The large scale, and environmental conditions of the Northern Border pose specific technical challenges to securing the border. In this proposal, we detail a novel mesh networked RF sensor, ARGUS-HS based on IAIs current ARGUS. ARGUS-HS will have 1-3 years run time on a single D-cell battery, and provide robust, cost-effective perimeter security under (Non) Line of Sight conditions at both Northern and Southern borders.
