Abstract
The Army has developed systems for Sense-Through-The-Wall (STTW) intelligence collection, and while they are effective in many scenarios, these current technologies have capability shortcomings and characteristics that limit their usefulness in many applications. These shortcomings include encumbrance (oversized or heavy unit) and lack of portability, required man in-the-loop, and the inability to sense stationary targets. This research effort will leverage MEMS fabrication techniques, radio-frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) miniaturization methods, and Oceanit's expertise in Doppler radar sensing to develop smaller-than-handheld radar devices in adaptable, remotely operated, networked configurations that can be used to collect intelligence through walls in a variety of situations.
