Networked UGS


A networked unattended ground multi-sensor from QinetiqQinetiq is offering UGS which could be deployed by rockets, vehicles aircraft or manually emplaced. Its primary sensor is an acoustic array used for initial location and tracking of targets. A low cost thermal imager producing panoramic survey of the area is used for target classification. The main advantage of this UGS is its network sensing the system uses emerging, self organizing networking to link several sensors to provide persistent surveillance and targeting over a large area. Networking also helps reducing false alarm rate, by having several sensors "agree" on the identification of a target before an alarm is triggered. By generating "fixes" from different positions, by several sensors, the system can generate accurate target positioning, and effectively track a target as it moves from one location to another.
