Motion detection and camera systems can act as effective force multipliers for ground personnel. There are several reasons that this capability has not made major inroads into field use. The first is overall size, weight, and power as well as cost (SWaP-C) has been unappealing given the capabilities of current systems. The second has to do with the fact that most current systems are proprietary to the vendor. By only providing end-to-end solutions these systems are unable to take advantage of technology advances in core technology areas of other vendors. In this effort Toyon proposes to conduct a thorough feasibility study. This will involve a comprehensive review of existing systems, individual technology component that could be used as part of a system, as well as core technologies that could be used to create system components. The study will consider sensor technologies, data transmission, and display requirements. Our study will place special emphasis on overall technology trends and seek to identify components that can be reused that have broad use. For instance, with the increasing prevalence of Internet Protocol (IP) capable radios and personnel-carried PDAs, there are now means to convey and display information with only nominal amounts of software development.
