Abstract

This proposal presents a secure, automated, field deployable Networked Sensor Array. Each array consists of many “Miniature Netted Sensors” (MNS). These sensors detect, quantify, encrypt and forward relevant situational information to Command and Control Units (CCU) and/or other designated recipients. Individual MNS units self-organize into a secure network upon deployment. The network is self-mapping and relays its GPS derived location to authorized recipients. A distributed algorithm adaptively assigns sentry duty and other core tasks to the MNS units in the network. Specific data and information sets are continually provided by the sensor network. These data sets include active alerts and detection events such as matched audio signatures (i.e., personnel, vehicle type, ordinance, etc.), video data (i.e., compressed single frame, stream bursts, etc.), and motion and position changes (3-D accelerometer and GPS). Arrays can be deployed remotely via air drops or positioned manually by minimally trained ground personnel. The MNS design provides for compact long-term storage and quick deployment.
