Research Institution

The Marines seek the development of portable terrestrial sensor kit that allows up to 10 remote sensor nodes to wirelessly send footstep detection events to a central base station. The central base station is manned by a member of a tactical unit carrying a multipurpose tablet or PDA. The sensor system must be capable of operating for 7 days continuously and be rugged enough to survive the harsh battlefield environment. The objectives of the Phase I research is to conduct trade studies and perform design tasks for developing the small terrestrial sensor system. The study includes evaluating and selecting the various critical design elements and includes1.Evaluating and selecting an appropriate wireless network technology2.Specifying the Sensor Node hardware design3.Specifying the signal processing needs4.Developing the Base Station Architecture and components.5.Specifying the user interface and use casesThe Phase I proposal addresses the design trade-offs and technical considerations related to each of the above design elements. This includes evaluating the available technology and their impact on the system design. Upon completion of the Phase I, Adaptive Methods will have the necessary design work completed to construct an first article EDM.
