Abstract
The Phase I study demonstrated that it is feasible to detect and identify small explosions amidst a background of natural and anthropogenic noise sources. The Phase II project will develop a commercial Low-Noise Smart Sensor that would be part of a Deployable Small Explosion Monitoring System for remotely monitoring small explosions. The Phase II project will design and build a prototype Deployable Small Explosion Monitoring System. Phase II will involve packaging a commercially available or experimental low-noise accelerometer with a small processor in order to develop a prototype low-noise smart sensor system. These systems have potential commercial applications to early earthquake warning systems, facility monitoring, perimeter monitoring, and border security.
