Paper Abstract

McQ developed for the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) an acoustic and infrared measurement, node localization, and building characterization prototype system. The system is designed for both manned and unmanned use to develop greater situational awareness through the exploration of unknown structures and relay of mapping data through ARDEC's Firestorm network. This research covers ultrasonic and infrared ranging sensor performance, GPS-denied positioning solutions, sensor data fusion, and mapping algorithms. Applications of McQ's Structure Mapping system also include first responder mapping and positioning. McQ will present development methodology and performance.
