Paper Abstract

This paper addresses a new type of sensor that we are calling a profiling sensor. The profiling sensor collects sufficient information to classify objects reliably. In addition to meeting the classification requirement, the profiling sensor is inexpensive to build and maintain, will have a low unit production cost, uses a small amount of power, has a long battery life, and is very low weight. A variety of concepts are presented along with human signatures from one specific profiling sensor. In addition the paper includes a discussion of different concepts or architectures for profiling sensors as a function of potential applications.
