Abstract
In the Phase I effort, we will implement a three level modeling approach to provide the basis for an optimized multi-sensor design. The three levels include performance, cost and power. the organization of each level will include provisions for the sensor, processor, transmission and display. the cost and power models will be based on survey of existing technologies using methods outlined below in the work plan. The performance model will include the ability to parametrically compare and contrast different sensor suites with varying capabilities and will include sensing, processing and transmission of results. Finally, we intend to use both traditional heuristic and more mathmatically rigorous methods of optimization based on a genetic algorithm approach to search the design space for optimal solutions which we define here to be the maximum performance within a given cost, weight and power envelope. The result of this optimization will serve as the basis for a preliminary low cost, low power multi-sensor design.
