Research Institution
The development of a seismic-acoustic wireless multi-sensor arrays system that can automatically detect ordnance rounds impacting the ground, classify them as high-order, low-order, or dud/UXO, and locate the impact site to within 2 meters will provide the DoD a new strategic approach to the massive problem of UXO cleanup of impact areas on ordnance testing and training impact ranges. The technical objective of this project is to build, integrate, test, and evaluate a complete prototype system based on the optimal design concept described in the Phase I Technical Report. The prototype will accurately assess and document mortar and artillery round impacts at two active range demonstration sites. Successful criteria for impact assessment, location, and data archival systems are: (a) at least 95% of rounds fired into the impact area are detected and classified as high-order, low-order, or dud/UXO; and (b) of those impacts successfully detected and classified, 90% are located to an accuracy of 2 meters or less from the ground truth impact spot, and 100% are located to an accuracy of 10 meters or less. The period of performance is 23 months, after which the proven prototype design will be transitioned to an operational production design for Phase III.
