Abstract : The US Army Research Laboratory s (ARL) Networked Sensing and Fusion Branch continually strives to develop next generation unattended ground sensors (UGSs) and other sensing platforms. In support of these goals, it is a requirement to have access to seismic, acoustic, magnetic, and other sensor signatures of vehicle and people. These signature databases allow researchers to develop cutting-edge detection algorithms that detect and classify 1 or more vehicles or persons. These algorithms will be geared toward current and new UGS applications. For this effort, a team was deployed to Spesutie Island at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, to collect signatures of personnel and vehicles from July 27 30, 2015.
