Abstract
Through this effort we will introduce a new unattended ground sensor design and architecture for measurement and signatures intelligence (MASINT). The proposed architecture will integrate several of our existing technologies including; radar tags, ground sensors, SAR image processing and ground stations. Our architecture will integrate key exploitation tasks into the sensor design in order to reduce the overwhelming volume of sensor data requiring evaluation by the analyst. The highest priority information will be inherently prioritized through a simple methodology, providing the analyst with initial choices that do not require time consuming processing and signature recognition steps. It is our belief that our unattended ground sensor design and architecture can be extended into other application areas, and we will demonstrate the potential for our sensor/tag architecture with sensor systems designed to perform such operations as SIGINT, COMINT, biological, and radiation detection. The development of these other sensor/tag combinations could be completed under follow-up contracts or other commercial efforts.
