The potential for radio communications to be used in asymmetric operations against coalition forces has grown exponentially and has expanded well beyond the now-familiar IED detonators. Expeditionary forces, in particular, convoys on the move, need an effective counter surveillance capability to combat this threat. Following a very successful Phase I effort, the team of 21st Century Systems Incorporated (21CSI) and Missouri University of Science and Technology is pleased to propose to continue our research and development of a counter surveillance concept called TRANSURV. This transmission surveillance tool is the synergistic pairing of RF DF equipment and video cameras to provide persistent perimeter surveillance without incurring a large manpower footprint. The RF sensors are used to cue video cameras (slew-to-cue), which slew to the RF source. Utilizing advanced video analytics, TRANSURV analyzes the scene for human presence and alerts the operator. Built on 21CSIs successful force protection product line, TRANSURV provides decision support that enhances situational awareness and security. Combining 21CSIs extensive experience in force protection decision support, service oriented architectures, and video analytic technologies, with MS & Ts expertise in RF detection, this team is the most qualified to field this capability.
