Abstract
There are a number of sensors capable of detecting valuable information. However these sensors are many times only valuable if they are in a strategic location. To place the sensor in a strategic location it potentially requires some type of concealment and would also be remote. One of the biggest issues we struggle with power to drive the remote sensors. This can be solved using one of two approaches, 1) put in more power or batteries or 2) reduce the power required by the sensor. Our approach is to make a very low power sensor and in many cases a passive sensor that can communicate the sensed information at several miles. BENEFIT: A successful Phase I and II would develop a remote access option which allows most sensors to be connected to a very small device that can be read from a significant distance. The remote access would require very little to no power to access.
