Research Institution
Freestyle Technologies, Inc. proposes to perform exploratory research in the area of munition-deployed microprobes. The baseline microprobe will consist of simple acoustic and sesmic sensors and will be deployed by an autonomous munition at locations ofinterest. Once deployed, the microprobes will form an ad hoc wireless network and passively monitor for targets. The microprobes will signal the orbiting munition to the presence of targets during a munition overflight of the microprobe area. Themicroprobes are intended to help solve the occluded target problem and to provide persistant monitoring of the battlespace prior to target engagement. The development of the proposed microprobes will assist landbased search and rescue operations bymonitoring acoustic distress signals in remote areas. The microrobes can also be wired into fixed networks to monitor and control traffic.
