Abstract
VAWD Applied Science and Technology is pleased to offer the following proposal in response to DARPA"s Small Business Initiative SB121-004, Biometrics-at-a-Distance. VAWD"s experience with development and testing of stand-off range Sense-Through-the-Wall (STTW) and Foliage Penetration (FOPEN) radars for detection and tracking of human motion in last five years enable VAWD to propose the following tasks to meet the requirements in Phase I. Use a BioPac BioHarness to collect human postural sway, breathing and heartbeat micro-movement data. Use simulation and analysis to develop radar DSP algorithms for extracting, discriminating and classifying micro-Doppler signatures associated with human postural sway, breathing, and heart-beat. Build human micro-movement simulator hardware for testing with one of VAWD"s Sense Through Obstruction Remote Monitoring Sensor (STORMS) radar products. Perform initial tests at stand-off ranges of 20, 30, and 50 meters with and without an obstructing wall. Final delivery will consist of a report containing the results and analysis from both the simulation and the initial testing.
