Paper Abstract

The DARPA funded sensors developed for the UGS program have provided a good starting point on the physical infrastructure protection capability. Now we need an ability to merge the sensor data from multiple sources into a knowledge base that allows the monitoring personnel to easily view the entire situational awareness picture. This will entail the development of a command and control suite for use in the other agency operations. Presently there is a developmental gap between the sensor raw data and the full up military system that feeds global command and control networks. This gap is the small software-based command and control system with identification algorithms that can be tailored to the small operational scenario such as embassy protection or border patrol monitoring and be capable of residing on a laptop computer. From a systems engineering viewpoint, this command and control suite could be the key ingredient in the transition of the sensor technologies into the other agency applications. The transition of the sensor technology to numerous other applications can be hastened by the quick development of a C2 suite for use in the present high terrorist threat environment.
