Abstract

WaveBand Corporation in collaboration with University of Arizona proposes to modify and augment the I-REMBASS sensor suite by adding high resolution compact millimeter-wave (MMW) imaging sensor to enable small target (boats, both rowing and powered, sail,etc.) detection along the river or other in-land waterway. MMW is the only sensor capable of remote detection of such small targets in the presence of atmospheric obscurants. In addition, the MMW imager will determine the target vector velocity and willprovide real time wide-area surveillance. If foliage penetration is desired, an S-band radar sensor can be added utilizing the same type of novel scanning antenna patented by WaveBand. Phase I work will focus on the multisensor traffic monitor (MSTM)design, advanced data processing, and the sensor network architecture. In addition, due to WaveBand's equipment contribution to the project, the Phase I effort will actually demonstrate small target detection at the distances of up to 1,000 m.The sensors autonomous operation and deployability will be investigated. Commercial applications of MSTM include a perimeter security monitor for protecting important assets, remote fire sensor, and concealed weapon detection.
