Abstract:

A distributed collaborative sensor and transmitter architecture was developed in support of an ongoing collaborative agreement between the US Army Research Laboratory ARL and the University of Notre Dame UND. The hardware developed in support of this research effort was designed to provide a mobile ad hoc network MANET of diverse software-defined sensors to perform detection and geolocation of a signal source of interest. A transmitter module was designed using the same fundamental hardware as the sensor modules. The transmitter modules would provide a software-defined waveform and ground-truth location to the distributed collaborative network of sensor modules. ARL has designed and fabricated the sensors, emitters, and the MANET architecture to be used in conjunction with UNDs custom software-defined sensors.
