Abstract:

Lack of accurate geo-positioning (GPS) information integrated within the miniature footprint of a wireless sensor handicaps rapid ad-hoc deployments. Self-mapping data analysis tools, as a result, do not dynamically display measurements real-time. In a battlefield or situation requiring rapid deployment and situational awareness, this is unacceptable. ADA Technologies proposes to address this need by developing a system to gather information from ad-hoc networks of miniature smart sensors for tactical display to decision-makers. This system features a sensor module incorporating miniature wireless communication and GPS capability with capacity to accommodate various sensor elements to detect a wide range of parameters. Spatially tagged information is gathered via an ad-hoc network from these sensor modules distributed in a monitored space. A final element of the system is a software package to spatially integrate the data automatically for dynamic mapping and data presentation. Phase I will develop a sensor node that incorporates GPS information and transmits this information to a server that builds a dynamic 2D display of the network, sensors and data status. Phase II improves the Phase I system with expanded sensor and display capability and further miniaturization of the ad-hoc network sensor node, and dynamically present analyzed data in an interactive 3-4D display.
