Research Institution
Sensor outputs form the foundation for decision support systems. Accurate models and simulations of these sensor outputs enables effective development, test, evaluation and use of decision support systems. Phase I focuses on chemical/biological detectorsbecause their variability embodies cutting-edge problems in the field of sensors and detectors.Phase I will focus upon the requirements, specifications, design, and methodology for modeling and simulating the inputs to decision support systems from outputs of detection (sensor) systems, which transform input data sources and associateduncertainties. These uncertainties include meteorological fluctuations, intrinsic and extrinsic noise of detection system channels and components, computer precision errors, and external disturbances. Existing simulations will be evaluated forincorporation into the methodology. Phase I will develop an initial prototype simulation of decision support system inputs, based on the methodology and simplified sensor models and simulations for the emerging Navy Artemis and ion mobility spectrometerdetection systems. The resulting methodology will be extensible to other sensors. Phase I option period will add a graphical user interface prototype, initial database, and perform verification and validation. Phase II will develop a fully functionalsoftware prototype, including support for synchronized time representations between simulations.The sensor simulation environment will have applications as a simulation environment used by sensor/instrument manufacturers, government program managers,chemical process industries, and the developers of decision support systems.
