Paper Abstract

Unattended ground sensors (UGS) utilize data from a variety of sensors (e.g., acoustic, seismic, and imagery) to make a determination about an unknown potential target. The Steel Rattler UGS derives its target identification solution from acoustic and seismic data. The identification solution and optional still imagery of the target are transmitted to the appropriate operating bases via satellite. This paper describes the various Steel Rattler hardware components used in the target identification process, the optional imaging system, and the communication system used for testing and demonstration purposes.
