Research Institution
The development of an intelligent, commercially available remote electro-optic/infrared surveillance system using the appropriate mix of agent technology, infrastructure, and personnel is critical to establishing and maintaining effective control of U.S. air, land, and maritime borders. The objective of the work to be conducted within this Phase II SBIR will be to transition the Intelligent Agent concepts developed in the SBIR Phase I effort to final product for improved sensor deployment and surveillance. This Phase II program will also utilize the appropriate hardware and software systems, and decision logic components of the Joint Unified Multi-capable Protection System (JUMPS). A near-commercial, Phase II remote electro-optic/infrared surveillance system (REISS) for ground-based medium-long range surveillance will be developed to validate the improved sensor deployment and surveillance performance capabilities provided by the addition of the Intelligent Agents. REISS, in summary, will utilize the Intelligent Agent techniques developed in the SBIR Phase I program to detect, track, identify, and classify items of interest (IOI) while managing the systems power consumption for situation awareness for control of air, land, and maritime borders.
