Abstract:

The report describes the first phase of a research program designed to develop an effective integrated sensor system for ground surveillance using several combinatins of radars, night vision devices and sensors. The results obtained in a realistic operational setting showed that 1 All devices used were effective for surveillance and target acquisition 2 Device performance effectiveness was also related to target type, terrain and ambient conditions 3 The optimal mix was judged to be a 2 device mix--an ANPPS-5 and one night observation device. At the Battalion level this mix performed best when used at 3 sites simultaneously. Author
