Abstract
We will develop a scalable low bandwidth network to automatically collect, process, archive, and disseminate information that supports/enhances training and readiness, safety, security, and environmental management. As a common substrate to this network we will develop and demonstrate a Geo Telemetry Unit (GTU) that will include a power source, GPS WAAS Receiver and Zigbee based wireless telemetry for mesh networking. The GTU will connect to a wide range of sensors. The vision is an integrated and automated network of operational meteorological, oceanographic, acoustic/seismic and security sensors located through large areas. At the monitoring installation, automated tools will be developed to overlay the data from these sensors in a GIS. The GTUs will also be controlled and monitored from these installations. The Phase I will also include development and demonstration of Gateways, to interconnect different networks. Gateways will also be used for any larger bandwidth requirements due to aggregation of data from several sensors before reaching the centralized monitoring station. When GPS signal is not available, utilization of RF ranging and pseudo-satellites will be considered.
