Abstract
McQ Inc. previously built and demonstrated an acoustic impact localization system to within 2m accuracy. As part of this effort, McQ developed an extensive explosion localization simulator to characterize expected system performance as well as determine key system parameters required to meet a given set of system performance requirements. During Phase I, McQ will enhance its simulator to account for environmental conditions such as wind, as well as develop the associated algorithms to accurately locate and classify variant explosions based on the performance requirements specified in the SBIR topic. At the end of Phase I, McQ will provide a complete set of system requirements and a concept of operations in which to build an ordnance impact characterization system that is low-cost, light-weight, small, easy to use, and operates on its own power supply continuously through the use of energy harvesting.
