Abstract
The proposed SBIR will develop a Disposable Unattended Ground Sensor System that has the performance characteristics of much costlier systems. McQ has defined a design approach that can meet the small size and ten dollar cost goals needed to consider the sensors as disposable. McQ has over ten years of experience in designing state of the art remote sensor systems and successfully commercializing them for a variety of applications. McQ will apply this experience to tradeoff performance and cost issues needed to realize a disposable sensor system that effectively detects targets while keeping the cost at a level the individual sensors can be used as disposable units. McQ developed a disposable sensor system design in the Phase I effort and evaluated the performance versus the cost to produce in quantity. McQ has provided a Phase I design presentation on the results of Phase I reserach. McQ will provide a formal Preliminary Design Review at the conclusion of the SBIR Option Phase after an additional two month effort to bridge the work leading toward the Phase II SBIR contract. McQ will develop and demonstrate the disposable sensor system in a Phase II effort.
