The Navys new Distributed Lethality strategy will require an extensive sensor network to support increased information requirements. Wireless sensor networks WSN for Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance ISR support offer a means to gather this information, and commercial-off-the-shelf COTS solutions offer an economical option for the required WSN components. Through computer simulation using the LEACH protocol and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B RPi parameters as the sensor nodes, this research explored the technical feasibility of using COTS technologies to implement a low-cost WSN. Simulations were designed to measure the number of rounds for RPi node death to compare performance against the current WSN structure using micro-sensor MS nodes.
