AbstractWe present a novel approach to the optical localization of remote sensors. Using a proprietary solution, we are able to determine longitude, latitude and altitude of a randomly placed remote sensor by purely optical means or by a combination of optical and RF communications techniques. Our approach is low-cost, eye-safe, stealthy, and minimizes or eliminates the need for human involvement in the localization process. Further, our approach easily handles hundreds of sensors spread over many miles of difficult terrain. Localization is quick and reliable. Our technology is easily integrated into existing and new designs for remote sensing.
