Research Institution
Our system concept is based on a number of ultra-low power"remote nodes"that contain: (1) a battery section; (2) a sensor section (3) and electronics section. The remote nodes will automatically detect and classify high value targets to type using AD & D"s proven automated detection and classification technology. The remote node will also extract key kinematics such as bearing in azimuth and declination angle, bearing rate, etc. These key kinematics as well as target classification features will be passed via a covert communicate message to the"Master Node."The"Master Node"will correlate target contact information from all nodes and develop a tactical picture based on remote node contacts. By combining bearing and contact data from separate nodes which are holding the same contact, a geographic areas of probability (AOP) of target position will be calculated and passed via a covert communicate message to the remote operator or on scene assets such as patrol aircraft, surface ships, or submarines to facilitate a rapid response and reacquisition of the target for fine localization and prosecution.
