Distributed Sensor System for Target Tracking (DSS)

Coordinated imaging (e.g., panchromatic, color, low-light and thermal infrared) and non-imaging (e.g., acoustic, seismic, magnetic) microsensors, each with organic real-time processing capabilities, linked in a distributed system hold promise for continuous situational awareness operating in all-weather terrestrial environments. With DSS, IET is working on the design and implementation of concepts for integrating, controlling, and fusing the product of a large network of heterogeneous microsensors for the purpose of target geolocation, identification, and tracking
