Title: Dismounted C4ISR Data Presentation and Dissemination by the Army Research Laboratory (ARL)
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Contract: DAAD17-01-C-0048
Award Amount: $95,933.00


This Phase I proposal responds to the need for a low-power, expendable, remote sensor array that can be emplaced and positioned to provide battlefield environmental data.Applied Technologies, Inc. proposes to design and conduct testing on a remote sensorarray capable of accommodating a multitude of sensors, including wind speed and direction, visibility, precipitation, atmospheric pressure and temperature, relative humidity, soil moisture and temperature, GPS position, and electronic compass. These datawill be transmitted by a spread-spectrum wireless modems to a test computer representing the central node. The Phase I effort will also identify components that comprise the central node. The central node, in addition to interrogating a multitude ofremote stations, also contributes to the tactical battlefield weather data by providing vertical sounding data with a innovative sodar configuration. Local data would be included in the collected data. The central node would process remote station dataalong with the local data and transmit resulting information to a remote collection unit that interfaces with military battlefield awareness systems through a secure spread-spectrum link.A remote station configured with a variety of sensors mounted on acommon platform can provide necessary data to many users requiring meteorological or environmental data. Some of the uses for a portable remote station are: weather service, agriculture, air quality, monitoring of specific catastophic events; flood,forest fires, droughts, extreme rainfall or snowfall. Airport wind profiling with the sodar.
