Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe a simple physical test-bed, developed to allow practical experimentation in the use of Decentralised Data Function (DDF) in sensor-to-shooter applications. Running DDF over an ad hoc network of distributed sensors produces target location information. This is used to guide a Leica laser-tracker system to designate currently tracked targets. We outline how the system is robust to network and/or node failure. Moreover, we discuss the system properties that lead to it being completely “plug-and-play”, as, like the distributed sensor nodes, the “shooter” does not require knowledge of the overall network topology and can connect at any point.
