Research Institution

SARA Inc. will demonstrate the integration of the Enhanced Acoustic Algorithms for Ground Vehicle Surveillance (EAAGVS) developed during Phase I with an acoustic sensor network. SARA will begin by building a single sensor node and User's display unit andinstalling the EAAGVS software. Field tests will be performed to evaluate the ability of the sensor node to detect, locate and count multiple vehicle target clusters. Vehicle classifier and counting algorithms developed by the TACOM ARDEC Acoustic Centerof Excellence (ACOE), and provided as GFE, will be integrated with the baseline EAAGVS algorithms. SARA will refine the algorithms and modify the hardware design based on the test results before building three additional sensor nodes. Additional fieldtests will be conducted to demonstrate communication between the sensor nodes and the User's display unit using an RF datalink and synchronization of the data in real time. A demonstration of the sensor network will be performed for potential users at amilitary facility on the East Coast. A tactical sensor system concept will be developed based on lessons learned during field-testing.
